Liam is doing really well on the cannula! Everyone who knows him is always so excited to hear the great news and comes to see how big he is. He sits at about 25-30% oxygen on it and he can usually bring himself back up when he desats.

He is at full feedings tomorrow and will get a calorie booster in his milk to try to get him to gain weight. He is still at 2 lbs 14 oz which is where he has been for the last week.

He got his physical therapy assessment today and he did really well- no issues! I get to hold him easily now and get to do it several times a day. We are now dressing him because he is able to hold his body temperature. He is still in a warmed isolette but he doesn't have to be controlled by the thermostat anymore.

Prayer: Liam will have an eye exam on Tuesday to check for retinopathy. His last exam showed that his retinas weren't even developed yet. They have to follow preemies because their eyes sometimes don't develop right and they can need surgery to correct it. Pray he won't have any issues with his sight.

Pray that Liam will continue to do well with his lung development allowing more weaning (to the regular cannula or room air).

Pray for no setbacks (illness, infection etc...)!
