And...

...the news we've all been waiting for...

The home oxygen has been ordered.  When it arrives, Victor will have his carseat test.  This means that he has to sit in his seat for 2 hours without brady or major desats.  Then tonight John and I will "room in" with Victor for a minimum of 6 hours to prove that we know how to handle him and his machines.  If all goes well, we will be discharged in the morning!  The doctor will not even consider a flight, so we will head east in a rental car, making frequent stops (doctor's orders are every two hours) to accommodate a preemie on oxygen who has never been upright in his 3 months of life.

Please pray:

-that the oxygen arrives in a timely manner
-that Victor passes his carseat test THE FIRST TIME!
-that all goes well rooming in

Many, many thanks for all of your prayers.  The neonatologist confirmed this morning what the nurses have been telling us all along, Victor's progress is amazing and not normal.  He credited this to the many long hours I spent here nurturing our precious baby.  We also credit the God who knew Victor before he was even born and who has all of his days numbered.  Being God's designated mother to Victor is my pleasure and honor and while I'm ready to be home, this months of bonding have been so special.  I'm glad we'll be reunited with the whole family soon.
