A new Monday

For the past couple of weeks Monday's have been rough. Mondays have always been procedure or surgery day. Today though we are breaking the mold. 

Today is breathing day! 

I can't even tell you how happy I am at this very moment, but I wanted to share it with all of you. 

Yesterday the vent tube was removed, and we went on a machine that through a little nose mask provided pressure to Knox's lungs. It was a stressful afternoon for all of us, but Knox is amazing and did well. 

Today though Knox is receiving a small amount of assistance through a nose tube but breathing on his own! He looks so happy and content now. My heart is filled with joy and relief (for now). He is such an amazing little man and I am so blessed that God lets me be his mommy. 

We also have began to use a pacifier. Gonna admit not my favorite moment but he is sucking on it which gives good hope for feeding through the mouth when we begin to work on that. 

The sun is shining bright today and Knox is breathing on his own. It's a beautiful day.
