Thursday Night

Let's hope he doesn't need this vent ever again! We'll be glad to see it leave the room!

Today was such a busy day, I wasn't on the computer until tonight. Ramsey had a great morning. His morphine was discontinued this morning, now they will only give it as needed.  He is receiving steroid breathing treatments twice a day.

This afternoon, he was agitated and spitting up a bit. They inserted a small tube through his mouth into his stomach to help with the spitting. The agitation was treated with morphine which didn't help so he was given an extra sedative to help him relax. Luckily, he didn't need to go back on the vent today. 

This evening, Ramsey was agitated again and needed more meds to help him go to sleep and relax his breathing. I hope he rests well tonight!

Ramsey is now up to a 5 ML continuous feed. They'd like to get him up to 16. Then, they will begin bolus feeds so he can begin to tolerate larger amounts of food at one time. Once he handles that, we will move onto bottle feeds.

  1. So glad to hear things are going so well for Ramsey.. I love the video.. hes so cute!

  2. So good to hear he is still improving. So nice to see pappy and Aunt Lori holding him...but I already heard what a big Blessing that was for each of them. We know that he is still in God's hands, and he is taking care of him. God bless you all.

  3. I LOVE WHEN YOU SEE STANDBY ON A VENT MACHINE!!!!! WAY TO GO RAMSEY. Lisa I am so happy for you guys. What a HUGE milestone. Your little miracle is such an inspiration. I love reading all the new things and seeing all the new pics. We will keep praying that progress is daily.
    Love and Hugs,
