Quick update: Liam continued to breathe on his own overnight with minimal support – just the cannula. However, this morning (starting a few hours ago) he has been having a really difficult time breathing around the secretions and fluid in his lungs. We are keeping close eye on him, but we are asking for all thoughts and prayers as this day moves forward.


  1. I am so praying for you all.

  2. Linda Berg says:
