Another step in the right direction

Just spoke to Blake's nurse.
Blake has been doing great coming off his ventilator. He's been doing so well that they plan to take him off the ventilator in the next 30min to an hour. He'll then be breathing on his own and have a little help from the CPAP.

While this is a great step forward, there is the possibility that he may not take to the CPAP and need to go back on the vent. We are hoping not, but have to be ready for all possibilities.

Great news Blake! Keep up the good work.

Jenna has also been doing good. She's just relaxing. She handled the increase in her feeding well (she's at 1.5cc). They turned her on her tummy and she's been much happier. Dr. Su said that he'd like to get her off the ventilator soon, but he wanted her at a good position before he makes that change.

All in all, it's been a great day of progress.
