Discharge in a few weeks!

I got a big surprise today when I went to visit Nicholas. His NP and doctor said that he should be discharged in about 2 weeks! He is up to full feeds from the bottle and they want him to do that for a week. They are also going to take him off the Vapotherm and put him on pure oxygen. This is what he will come home on. He will also have an apnea monitor. The week after next they will have us meet with the equipment and oxygen people to learn how to use it. We also have to take a CPR class and do an overnight stay for a 1 or 2 nights. I still can't believe we are almost done and talking discharge.


  1. I am so happy for you guys. My eyes are full of happy tears. I know when they started all the talk of doing the classes and overnight with DJ everything went by really fast so it is no time now he will be home.

  2. Wonderful news! Say the word, and we'll ship Grandma Terri back to help you out. I know her heart is with you each and every day!
