Throughout the last week, Aiden has marginally improved each day. That means little over the course of 24 hours, but over the course of a week it certainly adds up.
His oxygen dependency on the ventilator has dropped and they have been able to wean him to a much lower requirement. Although he still requires ventilation, he is doing much better and less dependent on it.
The x-rays look better when compared to last week and they have been able to take him off the paralytic (although he is still sedated). It was such a blessing to see him open his little eyes and look around the room. Brain and heart scans look good so the main issue is still the lungs.
Please continue to pray that his little body would fully heal. Also, please pray that we would know what decisions to make once he is released from the hospital. He has severe reflux and we need to determine the best way to feed him whether it is orally or through a feeding tube.
Thanks so much for your support and prayers!
