Special prayers needed tomorrow
Kanyon has had another good day - they upped his feedings to 7cc and he is tolerating that well. A full feeding is 15cc, so he's nearly half-way there! Tomorrow they are going to take him off the ventilator to see if he can breathe on his own. They will put a CPAP in his nose, which pushes a continuous flow of air through his lungs to make sure all the little airways stay open, but it does not actually inititate breathing for him. He will be breathing pretty much on his own. His doctor says that it may tire him out and they may have to put him back on the ventilator after a few hours, but they'll just have to wait and see how he does. The doctors and nurses keep stressing that it is a big day for Kanyon, and it's making Jaymie nervous. So pray that Kanyon has the strength and energy to breathe on his own, and pray for peace for Jaymie and Kory so they won't be so worried.
