It worked!!

We just raced home from a quick stop in to the cardiologist and it seems McKay's carefully-placed new coil is doing the trick. He posted oxygen saturation readings between 78 and 82 this morning...YAHOO!! I couldn't help but whoop and holler right in the exam room. Those numbers are as good as McKay has ever recorded.

That means no more tubes, cords, or tanks for now. Hallelujah. Praise be. Can I get an Amen?! We are truly so relieved, grateful and giddy we just had to share the good news!

Thank you so much for all the prayers. As I type I am watching McKay crawl as fast as he can straight for me--a feat that normally would have been circumvented midway by his leash of a cord. No more! It's a joy to watch him be free--a joy that is simple, pure and soon to become a true challenge as we try to save him from his new daredevil self. We say: Bring it on! xoxo.

Awesome! But that means you won't have to lug around 40lbs of tanks and car seats everywhere. What will you do for exercise instead? :)

Thanks for your comments on my blog about little boys. I wish I could come and just sit at your feet and soak up your wisdom for a day (or two). Thanks for your attitude and insight.
