Day 18

Alex is doing great today. They are turning his NO machine off today to see how he does! (The nitric oxide helps keep his pulmonary arteries from spasming) His epi is lower than it's ever been and I was informed by his daddy a few minutes ago that he's alert and looking around right now and breathing himself so his nurse got him a mobile to look at. It might not seem like much, a mobile but healthy babies get toys........ that's how we see it.

He's peeing good and the fact that he can open both eyes now shows the swelling is starting to subside. We don't notice it because we see him all the time but the proof is there. Go baby go!

He has another washout tomorrow, really hoping he tolerates it better than this last one.
