Jake update

Jake started the day on 6 cm of CPAP requiring about 39% oxygen. Currently, he has decreased down to 5 cm of CPAP and is on 27% oxygen. In other words, he has improved throughout the day! They started feeding him today through a tube that goes into his mouth and down to his stomach. Other nutrition is going through the IV that is in his left arm. They told us today that his chest xray showed pneumonia, so he is definately here until Sunday. We are thinking/hoping that he will only be here for 1-2 weeks.

Last night, Jake's nurse Emily put a Purdue blanket on his bed!
