The Four Pound Club
Today you joined the four pound club. But that's only half of the good news. You made another great stride on your respiratory support. Now, you are on high flow canula, but even now, your oxygen requirements are only a few points above the oxygen percentage in the atmosphere so the high flow isn't even really doing much for you. The next step is low flow and then you're off oxygen for good! That means you'll be able to finally start learning to eat from a boob and a bottle instead of a tube to your stomach. We still don't know how you'll react when you get your first gulp of milk, but we're inclined to think that you'll do well... you just need to remember that you can't breath and eat at the same time!
