Cohen had a calm and restful night. He is MUCH more himself today. We are so happy the doctors took him off CPAP this morning and put him back on vapotherm (did I really just say that?). He is on 4.0 liters of flow and about 28% oxygen. We counted up this morning that it took 87 days to get off the vapotherm before surgery......hopefully, it will just be a few days or a week this time!
They also discontinued his pain medicine drip and put him back in his regular crib. Rachel and I even gave him a good soap bath and dressed him. He looks way healthier.
We are a little sad and nervous that our entire doctor team will be switched this week. They only do a month at a time....so we will be back to all new doctors and another learning curve. Hopefully the transition will be smooth. They also told us it might be possible to go back to Baptist after the surgeons clear him. We were excited since we thought this was not longer an option----we will see if it pans out.
On this Sunday morning, Justin and I have had some quiet time with Cohen to give thanks to God for our many blessings. We are so grateful for his improvements and his fighting spirit!!!!
I also wanted to welcome my friend Kari (Caviness) Harvey's little boy Ethan to the world! He was born late last night. He weighed 5 lb. 9 ounces. Kari is very familiar with the NICU in Amarillo and has been a HUGE supporter and blessing to me during our NICU time. She is amazing and I am so thankful Ethan is here and doing great!
Here's a couple of pics of sweet baby Cohen this morning after his bath.
