They had Skyler on a spontaneous breathing setting all day today and he did amazing.  So when the respiratory therapist came in to suction him he said "Let's just extubate him"  At first I thought he was just joking but when the NP and Doc came in and said "Lets do it"  I started freaking out.  It was too good to be true, but ten min later they pulled the tube!!!  This is huge!  It all happened so fast.  I thought it would take the whole team sitting down and really talkin it through first before it would happen, but it was just so fast.  So after five weeks he is finally free of a breathing tube.  I am so happy!  Here are some pics of them taking out the tube.  He also wanted to sit up so they sat him up and he sat there by himself without any help.  It was amazing.

You don't know me but I am a friend of Chelsea Carver and I have a little boy who is friends with Cami. Little Skyler has been a part of our prayers since we heard his story, but two nights ago I was rushing through my prayers with my kids and forgot to bless Cami and Skyler. As I was about to say Amen, my five year old yelled "STOP- you forgot Cami and Skyler Mom". I won't forget again! Please know that there are so many people who are praying for you and your baby boy. Thank you for bring such a brave little guy Skyler!! God bless you both!

You are a strong mommy and give all the mom's out there hope to be the best we can be. I was very excited to hear the wonderful news of Skyler's improvement! I pray it will continue, you give me hope and your family will be in my prayers!
