Elijah is at 50% oxygen as of early this afternoon. Just 29 more points to go to be where you and I are. They have turned down the respirator to 35 breaths per minute (normal breathing on one's own is 20 breaths/min.). He is completely off the blood pressure medicine. They are continuing to decrease one of the sedatives - with no side effects. They have pulled the catheter out and he is now in diapers. Kidney problems? No way! Also, they weighed him today at 15 lbs 14 oz. We praise the Lord, he is doing so well. Thank you all for your prayers.
Teresa and Michael are planning to travel home on Friday to gather a few things, including their other two children :) and will be returning to Arkansas on Saturday. They look forward to being reunited as a family.
