Good News!!!

The doctor just saw our little angel and he said that is blood gases are with in range so he should not need to be intubated. He has a valve in his heart that is not closing properly, they say this is a common occurrence even in full term babies, and should be healed in 3-5 days. They were able to take him off the oxygen and he is stable and maintaining his oxygen levels well. They believe that his lung is inflating on it's own so there still is no need to insert the tube into his lung to inflate it. They will be doing an x-ray tomorrow and hopefully we will get a definitive answer!
Thank you for all the prayers, as you can see his condition can change from one minute to the next.
