Marcello before Extubation
Today, Manuel was visited by Courtney (his Respiratory Therapists) and fitted for the CPAP nasal tubing. However, they were still too large for his nose causing his nostrils to blanch. When the nasal cannula's for the CPAP were compared to those of Vapotherm, we noticed that the cannula for the Vapotherm were half the diameter of those of the CPAP. Courtney will discuss with Manuel's neonatologists to consider if Vapotherm would be an acceptable treatment in the next 24 hours.
Marcello after Extubation

Marcello has remained stable and therefore was extubated today. It was so cute when the tubing was removed from him, as he immediately raised his hands into the air. It was so cute to see this because he looked like he was saying Praise the Lord the tube is out. Marcello was started on Vapotherm and he has remarkably remained stable during the transition.

It has been an amazing day for Mommy and Daddy today for us to be able to hear Marcello's whimper once he was extubated. What a miracle it is to actually hear his voice clearly for the first time.

We continue to give thanks to God for the blessings He has provided for Marcello and Manuel. God is Great and we know that He is hearing prayers from everyone that is lifting them up to Him.
