On His Own

Just a quick update...They have turned off McKay's oxygen support completely and he is breathing well on his own. We are waiting on a blood gas test to confirm he is able to hold his levels in a safe zone. Cross your fingers. Hold your breath. Say a prayer. We would love to take our little man home under his own steam.

On the feeding front, McKay is starting to get hungry. I'm hoping they can move his feeding tube from his intestines to his stomach today. It's one thing to be nourished and quite another to feel full. McKay is aware of the difference and is fussing quite a bit about it.

That is soooo great! What a little trooper! So proud of him! We are praying. Kaden asked tonight who is the Cox family that we are praying for? It's been to long since we got everyone together I think!
Love ya,

Matt and Mindi--
I just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you on a daily basis and I am so glad to hear things are going well. It seems like every time I check your blog McKay has made another step in the right direction. What a little fighter! He has done everything according to plan! He must know there are good things waiting at home! :0) I will continue to keep you in my prayers. Keep the blog posts coming! Love you both. Em
