Day 11

I have to say there is not a lot to report on yesterday or today. But, given the circumstances I’m happy to not have a lot to report. The best news from the day is that Cain is no longer receiving oxygen. He spent the whole day completely breathing on his own and we finally started hearing him make his first attempt at crying. He still sounds like a kitten when he cries but you can tell he is warming up those lungs and soon he will be crying loud and proud! We thought all his chest tubes would be removed by today but the two he has left are still draining a little so they will continue to remain for another day or so. He also had x-rays yesterday and today that show his “lungs are still wet” representing that he is still holding fluids. Cain will continue to be treated with diuretics and will be followed closely.

What a great picture of Cain. He is so, so cute. I was pleased to get to see him in person yesterday, and to see the two of you as well. Especially to see you both smiling. Catherine, you were rubbing and rubbing Cain's head yesterday while I was there. Don't rub all that hair off :)!
