At 10am they will decide if they're going to put Mason on a respirator or not. It's not a bad thing, it just sounds bad. Ideally they would like him to be able to do everything on his own, but they don't want to exhaust him either. He slept good last night, and had good results from his gas test that they did last night to test his O2 and CO2 levels, but this mornings Xray showed more fluid on his lungs, and for several different factors it might just be best to ventilate him. It would make him stronger and give them a chance to get the fluid out of his lungs since right now it's not going away on his own, but still it's kind of scary. I've seen too many episodes of ER where people are incubated...and that being done to a 1 day old unnerves me. But more importantly, I want what is best for him, and I just want to get him better.

I did get to hold him for the first time this morning. He is so tiny. But he looks perfect. For such a small guy, he is very long, and he doesn't look sickly. He looks just like a very little baby. He has very good color, and lots of hair. He looks just like Kyle did when he was a baby. I just can't wait for him to be able to be up and be cuddled. I want that very badly!!! I know that I will be going home before he does...that won't be fun, but we will make it.

Mason is my miracle baby, and I knew that before he was ever even born...a miracle in every way. God has blessed me, and I know that he will survive this and be strong!
