Back in our Arms
Today we had our first chance to hold our son since more than 24 hours ago when he went to surgery. This afternoon, they took out the breathing tube, took him off of the warmer, and finally allowed us to hold him. We can see his little face again!
Our little guy is so strong. Not only did he get off the ventilator in about a day, but he also is already using his bag, which means that we will probably be able to start feeding him tomorrow.
We are still waiting on the CF test results, and we have a way to go before we're all better, but you can imagine our relief at the fast progress. He is a strong and healthy boy. He doesn't deserve this, but he continues to have good vitals, and he moves quickly to each milestone. His mommies are just relieved to be able to hold him. Next, we are excited to feed him.
Thank you so much for your continuous thoughts and prayers. Thank you for your words. Your comments have helped us more than we can express to you. We will continue to keep the updates going. We hope to report only good progress here. Thank you again for everything. We needed you all, more than you can ever really know.
