October 26, 2003
It's been a good weekend for our little fighter. Saturday morning his ventilator settings went down to the lowest level. This morning his blood gas (oxygen in the blood) wasn't perfect; they aren't sure if he's ready to be extubated just yet. Don't worry though; there will be a big announcement about that when it happens!! Jacob has gained another ounce bringing his weight to 2lbs 11oz, which is good since he's only been on IV fluids all week. He should be back on regular feedings within the next couple of days though and that will help him gain. The IV he had in his scalp was removed early Saturday because the line clotted, so he no longer has anything in his poor head. He can wear a hat now when someone is holding him! Our little guy is the strongest person I've ever known! I know he will grow up and accomplish amazing things!
