Ryan was also able to start back on some feedings today. They put him on a slow continuous drip of 10ml an hour and will turn it up as he tolerates it. As his feeds are turned up, they will turn down his IV fluids. He is still on the high flow canula today on about 5 liters and seems to be breathing a little easier than yesterday. He has a great doctor taking care of him (her name is Santa) and we have also had visits from his Lung Dr. and his GI Dr. today.
We haven't discussed a plan on going home yet but I am fine with him staying as long as he needs to get better. He is such a fighter! here is a picture from today. He is actually awake in this one!
I was playing him songs from his computer in this picture and then we went on youtube and found some Baby Einstein videos to watch for a while. Thank you for your continued prayers!
