Miller's got his work cut out for him today. The doctor has reduced his CPAP air pressure assistance to level 5, the lowest setting they use before removing it all together. He's laboring a little bit but hopefully that means he's building strength in his lungs.
The nurses have relocated his IV a couple of times. They say it's normal, and I think it's a result of his activity. They're talking about inserting a PICC ( peripherally inserted central catheter ). This is a more permanent type of IV and will give the nurses direct access for medications and supplements. It will also protect the lines from his karate chops.
So, Miller has a lot going on for the next few hours. It will probably be a little rough on him, but he's a tough little guy. We hope to have a photo session today and we'll post them if we do.
Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers.
Love, Danny and Stephanie
