Goodbye Mask..

Goodbye Mask...
Hello my Pretty boy...
Another BIG day in Blake's roller coaster ride- Blake was taken off the CPAP and placed on Vapotherm (Oxygen given through a nasal cannula that is humidified) Blake has been doing well with the switch and is on 4 liters at 30% oxygen, and his oxygen saturations have been stable around 98-100%!! We will be on this type of oxygen therapy now for a LONG while, and hopefully he will tolerate it well and just continue to feed and grow- and to get big enough to get his surgery and go home!! AND GOING HOME IS OUR GOAL!!!
More updates-Blake is now getting 29ml of breastmilk every 3 hours and he is still tolerating it well.
The doctors also did a repeat urine culture to make sure he didn't have any infection and they have come back NEGATIVE!! No more Urinary Tract Infection! They will be keeping a close eye on him though to make sure he doesn't get another one, but for now the antibotics have been stopped and Blake is doing well.

 Blake has had an eventful day!! He got to visit with almost all his grandparents all but 2- His Grandmo Monica and Grandpa Mark were here to see his pretty face and so was Grandma Pam and Grandpa Mike!! IT was a good day, he was a happy baby, slept most of the time but woke up to say hello to them all, and receive some loving on too!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
- Philippians 4:13

Blake even sported his UK hat at Riley to all those IU fans!!
He is ready to be out of Indiana and see what he has been missing out on in the bluegrass state!!
Daddy was all smiles today to be able to see Blake's face free of tubes everywhere!!

 Mommy was pretty excited too!! 
 Nothing better in the world that holding and singing to our sweet little boy!
 Daddy's boy through and through!
