This last week has been quite the roller coaster.  Its crazy how one day I can be so down and so heartbroken and then the next I couldnt be happier.  Today Skyler was taken off the ventilator!!  He is back on the bi-pap mask, but they were able to take that awful tube out of his throat.  They said that they were amazed at how well he is doing without it.  They also did an hour trial off the bi-pap and onto a nasal cannula to see how he tolerates it.  Again, he amazed everyone and did great.  He even smiled and laughed!!!  And then he just wanted to give me hugs and more hugs.  I couldnt stop smiling.  I cant stop smiling right now as I write this.  To go from one day of seeing Sky SO sick and sad, to the next day smiling and laughing is awesome to say the least.  Pure joy and happiness is what comes to my mind.  Oh how I missed that little laugh and those sweet hugs.  I just pray that I will continue to be able to experience these happy moments.  These are the little moments that I can pretend that all the bad is gone and just smile and laugh and love him.  I love being his mother, I am truly blessed.

                               I just wanted to post this picture because it brings a smile to my face
                                        It shows a little of that personality that I love so much

                                  

Also, I want to say a BIG thank you to those amazing people who put together and dropped off an awesome basket full of goodies for me and Sky.  You made my day, and Skyler's eyes got really big and happy looking through everything.  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
