These are exciting times. Our daughter has done it! Our day nurse informed us that during the night Karsie made a big stinker. Medically this is good because it means that her bowels are working under Patch. It also means we're one step closer to being able to give her breast milk.
She is slowly being weaned on her ventilator. Her CO2 levels continue to be a tad higher than we would like them, but they are low enough to wean at times. We will continue to update you on the numbers, but for now she is doing well on lower settings (low for her). Keep praying that she puts on her determination hat and starts pushing herself closer to home.
