I am back at RMH for the next 30 days. I am so thankful to have this house here. If you ever want to help in any way- drop your change in your local McD's boxes at the drive throughs and inside. RMH runs on 80% donations. We get dinner meals usually fixed by volunteers. When we don't have volunteers we don't have meals.

Liam is back up on his vent settings from having a rough night. They tried to move him to cpap this week where he has to breath on his own but the vent still supplies pressure and he was not ready for that at all. Last night his arterial line (the iv in his arm) went out and he lost blood flow to his hand for a while. He was in a lot of pain with that and then his tube got clogged and he wasn't oxygenating right. It's hard to see such a little guy in pain. He scrunches his face and opens his mouth wide to cry but can't with his tube in his mouth. Maybe today they will introduce breast milk. I am on my way over now.

That Liams lungs would grow strong and mighty allowing continued decreases in his ventilator.

That Liam would adjust fantastically to being introduced to breast milk. It's a big deal for his body to finally get food into his gut.

That Liam would not be set back again by any infections, diseases or viruses.
