He's Off!

Last night one of the nurses in NICU was turning Garrison over at about 4:00 a.m. As she did so, something didn't sound quite right and she looked down to see that his ventilator had come out (we assume he pulled it out!)
They usually take that as a sign that the baby is ready to be off the vent. So, they just hooked up the nasal oxygen tube and let him breathe on his own. He is currently at 30% oxygen, and doing fine. They should be checking all his vitals and blood-gases soon.
Please pray that his breathing continues to regulate itself and that he doesn't need to go on the vent again.

This is Dixie, Doug Gunselman's wife. I just wanted to tell you that I will be praying for all of you. I know this must be a hard and scarey time. God will work through this and your little guy will be home soon, I'm sure. I'm glad to hear he is doing better. Please tell Tracey I will be praying specifically for her; I know even having to wait a day to nurse and hold my babies was miserable. We'll be checking back to read your updates. All our love and prayers.
