Word going around is that Liam is ready to try CPAP and they will load him with caffeine today to get him prepped. That means he will no longer have the tube down his throat and will have to do all his own breathing. The caffeine stimulates him so he won't forget to breath. The CPAP will still inflate his lungs some (its a mask with high pressure going down his nose) since he is so little and his lungs have been inflated for him for so long now. He is up to 2 lbs 14 oz and toleratng his feedings well.
Please pray for continued success on his feeds, and marvelous results on the CPAP! Please pray for no setbacks and that Liam would grow strong and mighty allowing him to wean down to just a cannula very soon!!!!
