One of the reasons we chose the name Wyatt is because of its meaning. I hope that our little Wyatt has the strength of a warrior because he is going to need it to make it through his stay at the NICU. So far I think its safe to say that we have a fighter on our hands. Wyatt has made it through another day and the doctor has been able to turn the pressure on his ventilator down even more since the last time I posted. His last chest xray came back pretty good, he still has some small air accumulation on left side but the right is completely cleared up. His hyperinflation is still a concern because of the pressure on his heart and because his lungs are down to his 10th rib and they want his lungs to be closer to his 8th rib. His blood gas was good as well and his oxygen levels are staying between 25 and 35. His next chest xray and blood gas are at 4am, so I will update everyone tomorrow when I get to the hospital. We are praying for another uneventful night so that Wyatt's lungs can continue to heal. We cannot thank everyone enough for praying for our family. The Lord is taking care of Wyatt and we know that his progress is a result of all the prayers lifted up on his behalf!
I wanted to let everyone know that my doctors appointment went okay. I have an infection that should clear up with a round of antibiotics. I go back in a week to make sure the infection is gone.
