Brian stayed with Jack last night, so I don't have all the details. But I do know he had a pretty uneventful night except for the O2 machine going off all night because jack changed positions or the probe got pulled or the nasal cannula came out of his nose. This morning when the doctors did their rounds they said Jack to remain above 85% on no supportive oxygen for 24 hours. I am determined to see this happen so we can go home tomorrow. The problem is Jack loves to play with his trains all over the floor, which causes his levels to drop. Because of the hole left in his heart after his open heart surgery his levels are naturally going to drop when he moves, coughs, holds his breath, or anything. So, keeping his levels up is almost impossible!

So here we sit with Jack off oxygen and at 88%.
