Morning visit

Braden's feedings have been changed to 20 CC's per feeding. We are on a weight gain mission. Our doctor talked to us today and discussed next steps. We are looking to remove Braden's broviac line pending test to make sure he is rid of his infection. Hopefully, everything will turn out as we expect and not different. Braden has also been turned up to a 3 on his Vaportherm. This will make it easier for him to breathe. He has a little bit of difficulty due to some scarring in his airway. This will help compensate for that till he gets big enough to manage it on his own.
