The latest on little James

Hello all,

Well baby James is incredible!! He is doing so very well! His 48 hours post op have been on the whole very good. He had a minor blip about 6 hours after his operation when they discovered his red blood cells were very low, causing his stats to change. However, following a blood infusion & some fluids he returned to normal pretty quickly, since then his blood gases have been good. They have successfully weaned his venilation pressure from 20-19 and he is on .25 oxygen.....very good!

Now for the exciting part.....they have turned off his paralytic drug. Over the next 12 hours James will start to wake up!! He is doing so well!! Mike and I are so excited to see his little eyes open & watch him respond to us. He's likely to become alert very late this evening so I don't think we'll be going to bed ;-)

James never ceases to amaze us. He is such a 'little warrior' as Daddy calls him! God is certainly unfolding a miracle in front of our eyes & we are so thankful!

Please continue to pray for baby James' recovery, we yearn to have a cuddle & feed him!

Thank you again for all your love & support

Mummy & Daddy Reeve xx

Eager to hear how James is doing I've been checking in every couple of hours over the weekend, so it's so lovely to hear that he is simply amazing! Though this must be such a rollercoaster ride for you and Mike, right now it seems as though it will be the best one anyone could ever ride. I'm sure his little eyes will light up and sparkle when he sees your faces smiling down. Hoping that James continues to go from strength to strength. Love to you all
