And his name is......

Aaron Daniel Tooley

Aaron is doing well this morning. His respirations are in the 50's (we want him to be less than 60). When he was placed on the vent his respirations were 140's, so this is a huge improvement. All his blood work is coming back exactly where it needs to be. He's very relaxed and sleeping peacefully.

The next step is to start feedings- as long as his breathing remains stable. Initially he will get tube feedings to avoid the stress of having to suck/swallow/and breath. As he proves able to do that (and doesn't need the assistance of the vent to breath) then I can start breastfeeding. Hopefully this process will start sometime today.

Thank you all for all of your kind words, thought, and prayers. I can't imagine going through this without your support.

More later...
