Mattie is doing so well. They have weaned him off multiple medications and have turned the ventilator settings way down. The machine is doing very little breathing for him. If all goes as planned tomorrow will be the day that they will take Mattie off the ventilator!
This is incredible news all around. First it means his lungs are getting much stronger. Secondly, as you can imagine there is discomfort in have tubes down your throat! And THIRDLY!!!! It means Momma can hold Mattie boy!
Mattie still has several weeks of antibiotic treatment for the staph infection and he needs to continue to make improvements in eating. He is doing well with tube feeding though.
We are still trusting the Lord and believing that he can be transferred to Kansas City for his remaining care. Please pray for favor with the insurance company.
TOMORROW MATTIE, TOMORROW!!! Momma’s going to hold you tomorrow!
