Today, Manuel’s ventilator began to have problems reading the oxygen levels. The respiratory therapists called for a new O2 cell for the machine. The ventilator technitian changed out the cell, but this did not fix the problem. Therefore, a new ventilator was brought in and he was placed on the new machine. This was hard to watch as he had to be placed on a manual pump and there were two respiratory therapists working on keeping him breathing and changing out the equipment. This time the ventilator worked and he was placed back on the ventilator. The remainder of the day Manuel remained stable and Mommy was able to help with Manuel’s hands on tonight (temperature, diaper change, and holding).

This evening, we found out that Pastor Lepley had written a letter on his blog about our experience. We were humbled by his words, and wanted to share with you his letter.
