He is doing well.

They are weaning his oxygen level down in his hood. He is currently at 60% and still sating at 100%. \0/ Room air is 21%. At some point (I don't know when) they will determine he doesn't need the hood anymore and put him back on a cannula. Good because I'll be able to see his face, bad because he HATES having anything up his nose.
They have also started feeding him again via his NG tube. It is slow going as he hasn't had many bowel movements since he has been on TPN for a while. They gave him an enema which had 'good results' so hopefully he'll get that milk moving through the pipes soon.

Praise God he is doing well. Still praying lots and lots! Let us know if you get a room to stay longer.
