Extubation day!
Liams nurse today had never had him before. She could not believe the difference in him from before extubation and after. She was shocked. He was ticked all day-pulling on his tube and flailing his arms and legs in the bed... As soon as the tube was out he was my sweet little boy again! They put him on the cannula for now just in case he has any issues just coming off of surgery. He was doing great when I left. No desats. They didn't want to reintroduce food to Liam until tomorrow because they like to do things slow. But- Liams IV's wouldn't work. One of them was filling his leg with fluid instead of it going in the vein so it was twice it's normal size and the other clotted off. So- they started him back on food at 8:00 pm. I am praying the feeds go well and he can get back up to his normal self again. Whew.... What a week...

Prayers today are for complete and perfect healing to Liams eyes...
and No problems with feedings...

I Corinthians 2:9 However it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what GOD Has prepared for those who love him."

Praise God Almighty for his blessings and favor on your little one, Liam. May the Lord continue to grow Liam strong and mighty. We pray for continued progression in Liam's health and good reports from Dr.s
