Freddy

Hey You! Get Into My Car!

Hey 'Sup? Yeah it's my ride.

Hey 'Sup Dawg? Yeah it's my ride.

We went to a birthday party at a friend’s house this weekend and Les Boys really took to the red Little Tykes car that you have all surely seen in most backyards and day care centres across North America. But Freddy was having so much in the car that I just had to take some pics. Jacques on the other hand just slid right out of it and decided to have no more of it for the rest of day.

There are a few more pics right after this:

Jacques Battle – Day 1

Jacques Resting - Jan 30th Jacques had a rough night for his first night and he is trying to rest and build up some strength. It’s a lot of work for him to feed so the nurses inserted “Gavage” tube into his nose in order to get some food into his stomach and save him the effort of suckling away. The extra Oxygen helped him through the first half of the night, so they started to bring him down to room air to see if the saturation of oxygen in his blood would stay at 100% or very close to it. As he got closer and closer to room air (21% of O2) his breathing became harder and harder. So the doctors and nurses put him back on 40% O2 and eventually inserted and IV for antibiotics and fluids just as a precaution. The previous days fight to breathe on his own was catching up to him and now his lungs were having to run second marathon.

Courage mon petit Jacques, Courage!
