Our little two-timer

I know what your thinking...But what I mean by the title is....It takes Alex two times to do most things.... Like have his first surgery, be extubated, move to the third floor, have c-diff, pass a swallow study, have the cath to balloon open his arch... And the list goes on and on and on.....So today was a big day because it was the SECOND time he was extubated this stay!!!!!! I was able to hold him and love on him...He seems to be doing well and I am thankful for days like today....Jeff can't wait to be done with work so he can hold him too!!! We watched our little friend, Kaidence get ready to go (h...)..We wish them the best!!!!!
