Owen is doing well. He's down to 25 on the ventilator. If his gas levels are good, they'll move it down to 20 in the morning. When he's back down to 20 and maintaining good levels, they'll start the steroids for a three day course, monitor his progress, and then take him off the ventilator if all is well. We've been having daily kangaroo care the last few days. He desats a lot less often and he recovers quickly when he does. It makes for a much more relaxed kangaroo care experience. Last night he didn't desat at all through the night. He weighs 3 lbs and 3 oz!! His next eye test should be tomorrow or Friday.
