September 28th, 2007


Carver was feeling much better tonight. They have taken him off his morphine. He is just on Tylenol, now - about every 6 hours. He was stiffer then normal today. I'm not sure why - maybe from sleeping so much the last couple of days. His oxygen needs are still down. He's been eating really good for a little boy recovering from surgery. We're really proud of him. I know he's been through a lot.

Kinnick is still struggling with her breathing. Dr. Baton said that it might be related to scar tissue from her PDA Ligation. He also thinks she might have partially paralyzed vocal cords. He said it would require a special scope to see for sure, but thought she would out grow it over time. They turned her liter flow up to 2 lt tonight. I don't think it made a difference, so I'll ask if we can move it back down tomorrow. The extra flow tends to irritate her nose and dry it out.

I wanted to mention a new set of 23 weekers in the Wichita NICU. They took Kinnick and Carver's place. There names are Olivia and Logan. They have had their share of ups and downs like all 23 weekers. Tonight Logan is really struggling and could use some extra prayers. They have a blog site that you can visit at

Thanks again for all your prayers. I miss all of you!

Thanks for sending the blog site. It's nice to just click and see how the kids are doing. We are looking forward to them coming home.
