Goodbye Oxygen!

Noah had an overnight oximetry study done on Monday night and the results are in...no more oxygen! His study was dramatically improved and he was satting around 98% almost all night with only 1 minor apnea episode. The oxygen will stay in our home for now, in case things change when he gets sick. It is nice to still have that backup there as I'm still a bit concerned about how he will do long term. But hopefully he will continue to do well and we will be able to say goodbye to "the beast" once and for all! He is also only using his ventolin once or twice a week these days, so respiratory was very happy with his lung function! It's such an answer to prayer to see improvement! Now if only we could get that gut working right. One step at a time...

The house is suddenly so quiet at night without the roar of the concentrator...too quiet. I never realized the annoying sounds his other pumps make! Think we'll have to get a fan...
