Faith is doing well. Today she took most of her feeds by bottle! We can tell that the steroids (Decadron) are really helping her. We also found a nipple that is the same as her pacifier (the ones issued in the hospital) this has really helped her. This is very encouraging. Another encouraging thing is she might (now this is just a maybe) be able to come home on the high flow oxygen. Normally babies aren't allowed to go home until they are on a low flow cannula. The ENT that did Faith's bronch said it will take many months before her airway is healed- this means many more months in the hospital on high flow. If they can pull some strings and access home high flow equipment- she could come home a lot sooner. Of course she still has some other things to work on before this is talked about seriously- but it is something exciting to keep in mind (and pray for!) We finally feel that things are going upwards from here (we know we've said that before but this time we really mean it!)
Yay Faith! Keep on eating!!!!
Brian and Jen :)
