LJ – Breathing On Her Own!

Well, they just removed LJ’s ventilator tube. She is now breathing totally on her own! As you can see in the picture she is on what they call CPAP. It is pushing oxygen through her nose in to make sure she does well with breathing on her own. The HOPE is that she only has to be on it for 24 hours. All babies HATE the CPAP. It’s not a fun thing. It’s kind of hard to see her not liking it, but it is a GREAT step to get her 100%. She also has a small tube through her mouth to her stomach for feeding that they will start in about an hour or so. She is currently being comforted by Katie’s hands. We will probably be here for a while until she gets a little more calmed down.

Continue to pray for her as she pushing through this CPAP time.

Love,

Ben, Katie, and “Breathing on her own” LJ
