Jadon is now completely breathing on his own! As of late Monday, Jadon had all oxygen turned off and his nasal prongs removed. Since then, he has been able to maintain SATs in the 90s... which is wonderful and absolutely great! Sara even sent a picture of his SAT monitor showing SATs of 98% sometime overnight on Tuesday. This is a little guy who had SATs sitting around high 60% when we finally brought him in for his surgery!
With this development, Jadon is also gaining strength. He will sit in his bed unaided for over an hour at a time. He has been enjoying his stroller rides out of his bedroom, to the point where he is often unhappy if he is not out and about. For the last couple of days, he has had to do some of the work himself. He has been brought a ride-on toy from the physiotherapist and he was thrilled to be able to sit on it and move around. Now we had to do most of the pushing to get him moving, but his little legs are working, and they will gain strength quickly.
