Alijah Off The Respirator?
So…Alijah has come a long way from his birth 7 weeks and 2 days ago! He has finally gotten over all his infections, his oxygen needs have decreased drastically, his foot is healing from the IV infiltration, and he is down to 20 breaths per minute from the respirator, and he is eating 39 cc’s of milk every 3 hours!
Later today, he may be removed from the respirator! This will allow him to breath completely on his own (while just receiving oxygen), and also to use his voice! We have yet to hear it. On Monday, he will be done with his IV nutrition as he will be getting all his nurtition from his milk.
