Although his respiratory status is stable and he is off of oxygen, mom related that he is vomiting formula when given by bottle. He is also finishing up a course of antibiotics.
Saif’s mom was cheerful and seemed more rested today. She was happy with the nurses caring for Saif, and introduced me to one of them — as it turns out, I met this nurse in the 6th floor PICU last week— and I agreed that she is excellent! Compassionate, kind, and careful with the small patients in her care, as well as with the parents. A real blessing!
Please join us in praying for further plans for Saif: that he can get the nutrition he needs to grow; that plans can be made for his needs with a tracheostomy tube; and, that his mother will continue to be encouraged and refreshed despite his long hospitalization.
