I am excited to report that Brwa is doing very well after being extubated yesterday. He is now able to breathe room air! It was lovely to see his nasal cannula gone and his cheeks rosy. Brwa’s nurse said that she expects him to be in the hospital for at least another week. Brwa’s mother seems to be growing in spirits as each day passes with Brwa doing well.
As a new volunteer, I heard about the unsure outcomes for children coming off the ECMO machine. I am thrilled that the first child I met who was on ECMO is doing so well and improving each day. Praise the Lord for Brwa’s resilience!
