Surgery Tomorrow

Nicholas had a good day today. His nurse had him propped up in his boppy pillow when I got there. He did well in that position. They decreased his Vapotherm flow to 3 liters per minute. They also increased and changed his feeds to 50ml every 3 hours.

He is scheduled for eye surgery tomorrow afternoon so they will have to stop his feeds at 8am and he will have to be put back on the ventilator. Hope and pray that his surgery is a success and he recovers quickly. I was able to look at pictures from the retina cam today. I could definitely see the ridge that has formed where the blood vessels stopped. I could also see the Plus Disease which is hemorrhaging on the ridge. His left eye is worse than the right. They said that if it isn't fixed his retina would most likely detach.
They also said that as of now they want to do surgery to put his shunt in on Feb. 23.


  1. We will be praying! Good luck Nick!!

  2. We are with you every step of the way. We pray that you are blessed with a successful surgery.
