Breathing Treatments

Jimmie is doing very well. He is still breathing without air flow support. He has an oxygen hood over his head when he is in bed and a stream of oxygenated air blowing on his face when he is being held.

He is receiving breathing treatments to help his lungs recover from aspirating. They are better and the Doctor pushed the treatments back to every 12 hours today instead of every 6. He handles the treatments ok, but sometimes has a bit of an elevated heart rate- which is a side effect. So pray his body handles these treatments in the best possible way.

Rachael held him for about 3 hours this morning. It feels great for her to be able to do that again. Jimmie is very happy and content when he is on Mommy or Daddy's chest.

Jimmie's I.V. has stayed good and he only has 1 more dose of antibiotics. That is a big prayer answered. He was having a really hard time with that for a couple of days.

I'll post a fun video clip tomorrow!

Thank you for your powerful prayers for Jimmie's health and safety!
