Wyatt continues to struggle with his lungs but he has made some progress since he was switched to the NAVA ventilator. Last night the doctor tried him on a nasal cannula again but unfortunately he was not able to blow off enough co2, so he put him back on the NAVA. This morning the doctor had to remove one of his chest tubes and replace it with a new one in order to get rid of another pneumothorax. He has started to get feeds again which is important because that is the only way for him to start growing. He is receiving 1/2 ml per hour and needs to get to 3 ml an hour in order to get enough calories to grow. I do not have a lot of time to post right now but I wanted to give you a brief update and share a new picture.
