2012 R asleep
2030 they brought R's vitamins and Ranitidine, he was asleep and therefore missed them. (I was not waking him up for that.)

*At some point they hung a new bag of fluids and gave him another steroid during the night.

We are still waiting on biopsy results from the bronchoscopies. We were unable to add the probiotics since they were unlocatable. We will try to find them tomorrow and get them added to the oatmeal mixture. R is finally getting used to the steroids and is calming down a little. He is gaining weight like a champ and everyone is impressed. The nurses say that he is their favorite. Sometimes they come see him just to catch his smile. We are still waiting for his vest to come in, but they did find a smaller one here that works much better. He is the perfect tiny human to spend a 1 on 1 vacation with.

While we are up here we get to share our cf story with so many people. By doing so, we are sharing Gods love as well. Roanan, Seth, and I are trying to educate as many people as we can about CF so better care will be provided to families in the future going through long hospital stays. We try to explain the role of enzymes and the reason why they are taken and how. CF is alot of information and surprises. The more educated a person is the more successful they will be.

We pray that our story will lead someone to Christ.
