Charlie is doing well

Saturday Charlie was taken off his vapo-therm. He is breathing 100% on his own with no help or O2. He is doing very well this skill needed for life! His rash is also getting better. They still don't know what it is but think that it is just "newborn rash." So he had a good day on Saturday.

He still struggles with taking his bottle and vomits almost whatever little he gets. He even vomits mucus when he hasn't had any food. So have a few different nipples we are bringing in to try and see if he likes them better, but unfortunately that won't help him keep anything down. I am sure that they will come up with some surgically implanted feeding tube plan if he doesn't show signs of improvement by early in the week. That scares mom and dad as we know that kids come home with these tubes. But we are there for him and whatever he needs us to do. 

He is just so perfect and looks so comfortable without any tubes taped to his head. What a very glorious Sunday to give praise! Thank you all the prayers and continued support. We will post pictures and maybe even another video later today...hopefully.
