July 27, 2009

"Gabe is a rockstar!" That's what nurse "C" said this morning about Gabe's incredible five hours breathing on his own and we have to agree. Today is another big day for the little man. The staff will be putting in an feeding tube and give him his first real meal. Poor kids got to be starving, he has hadn't anything solid in a month. Hopefully it's a good flavor like steak and potatoes. Nurse "A" will be working with Gabe all day trying to re-inflate his left lung again since it collapsed yesterday during his breathing attempt. Slow progress, but at least we are moving forward. It may be two steps forward, one step back, but at least we are moving forward.

Here is a short video from YouTube of Gabe taken around noon, Monday July 27th. Unfortunately there were no open eyes. Nothing would wake him up this morning!
