This is our attempt to keep evryone in the loop. It's a public group so please send it on to extended friends and family.
Baby Miller is doing great. He was admitted to the NICU at 3:30 yesterday and was immediately put on a ventilator to help him breathe and stimulate his lung function. At about 10:00 PM, the doctors told us he had advanced to the point where they wanted to take him off of artificial respiration. He's now on a CPAP, which pushes air into his pathway but does not breathe for him. He's been breathing normal air for a little more than 12 hours and the short term prognosis is very good. Little Miller is exceeding the doctors expectations right now but he's got a long way to go. There will be numerous tests over the course of the next week and we'll do our best to keep you all updated. We're taking it day by day and cheering him on every chance we get. Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers.
