I got a call this morning about 11am from the hospital. The nurse proceeds to tell me…Ryan was on the CPAP all morning and did real well so we are extubating Ryan ASAP! By the time I made it to the hospital the vent was out, nasal cannula in place, and he had his eyes open! He blew me a kiss and began to spell his name! When I left to come home to get my daughter (who couldn’t believe I didn’t pull her out of school for the event), I left him watching a Barney DVD and he was smiling and tried to laugh. Although he isn’t in the clear completely…this is a HUGE step in the right direction. Thank you all again…I am sure the thoughts and prayers sent our way…were all heard. Today has been one of the best days of my life!
