Bridger Preston Skaar
Bridger needs our prayers right now. He is having difficulty breathing and is in NICU. Please include them in your prayers today and you can include a little prayer or congratulations here if you would like.

We are better today. I got to hold him finally last night and then again about an hour ago. He is still on oxygen and feeding tube, IV, etc. But may be able to start nursing tomorrow depending on how he does on feeding tube.

Bridger has an infection that showed up in his blood cultures today. He has been on antibiotic “just in case” for that exact thing since late Monday night, so at least they are a little bit ahead of it. But the bad news is that now he has to stay in hospital (and probably in NICU) until at least Monday. ;-( He did nurse tonight though, so that is great. They are still trying to get him off of the oxygen and breathing on his own. Time will tell. Thanks for all your love and prayers.
Preston, Darcy, Preslee & Bridger

We are better today- he is doing SO well at nursing. He is doing better today on oxygen etc. So hopefully we can stay in forward motion on that

Bridger is still in the hospital. Not really much change- eating good but still on oxygen. Once he can finally get off oxygen, he will have to stay another 24-48 hrs for monitoring before they will discharge him. Preston is desperately needed for hay/ barley harvest so he goes back to work tomorrow. Just wanted to update you. Darcy
P.S. Oh- I think I told you but… huge blessing that we have been able to “room in” at the hospital and nurses take as good of care of us as they do of Bridger.

Bridger is finally going home today!! He will be on oxygen for a while longer, but it is a small enough amount that the Dr feels like
we can manage it fine at home. Yeah!!! He will be discharged about 2pm. Darcy
