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!!!!

God is good! And he is in control.

Amos 4:13 ~ He who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals his thoughts to man, he who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the high places on earth-the Lord God Almighty is his name.

Lord God thank you for being so faithful to watching over, protecting, and strengthening little Liam McIntosh. We pray, Father, that you will continue to hear our prayers for him. You are Holy and full of grace and mercy. Touch Liam's lungs so that he continues to progress. May he have no setbacks or complications of any kind, Lord. Allow his feedings to grow his body and nourish it. Let it be that Liam will enjoy his feedings and not just tolerate them. We pray this in Jesus name, AMEN!
