Oxygen 67%, Nitric Oxide 2.5ppm

Roscoe had another night and morning of mild progress. His oxygen was weaned from 70% to 67%, his nitric oxide was weaned from 10ppm to 2.5ppm, and his base breathing support pressure was weaned from 6 to 5 (which will make the breathing support easier on his lungs). Here's a video we took yesterday with him resting, which is how we see him most of the time now:

Although Roscoe isn't back to the level of stability he had on Saturday when he was at 50% oxygen, the pulmonary hypertension team has tentatively scheduled him for the cardiac catheterization tomorrow. He will have a big day tomorrow if all goes as planned, because in the morning he'll start out with his lung scan, then move to the cardiac catheterization, then possibly get a bronchoscopy too (to check for airway obstructions or other issues).


  1. We are lifting you 3 up in prayer and will continue throughout the coming hours begging God to continue the positive progress. Love you 3!

  2. We're thinking of the three of you all the time and sending lots of prayers and love your way.

  3. Sending my thoughts and prayers your way. I will continue to pray for healing for sweet Roscoe and for peace and comfort for all of you. Give that sweet baby boy a kiss for me.
