Mr. Colin is finally off the ventilator. They pulled it out this morning and I was able to hold him. He doesnt have much of a voice since the vent was in and went thru his voice box. He is having a hard time eating, it is almost like he forgot how to suck. He looks beautiful and he cuddled right up and let me hold him for several hours before I had to head back home to take care of the other kids. He is still expected to stay for awhile to be watched but I feel very good about how he is doing so far.
