Seth going off vapotherm!

I (Gavin) just got back from delivering milk to Seth.  I couldn't stay and hold him, since we've got sickness in the house and they don't want me or anyone who's been exposed to stick around the hospital.  They were about to reduce him to 1/2 liter airflow and to just a regular cannula instead of the vapotherm (the main difference with vapotherm is that it is heated air).  Also, they are going to try to start him on bottle feeding!  We've been wondering what kind of breathing and eating support Seth may need when he comes home.  We don't know, but we really pray that he will learn quickly to bottle feed so he doesn't need a tube put in his stomach for feeds.  The fewer tubes that we have to deal with, the better.  That's our point of view, at least.  We'll see what God's is. :)

  3. Wonderful news,Gavin!! I made it to Meridian but the last 200 miles were gruling because of heavy rain. I'm thankful to be in my hotel room and safely off the roads.


    Blessings,
