He has done so well this week and even though he still has one of his breathing episodes a day they are very minor and the doctor feels comfortable sending him home on a monitor knowing that this is something he should grow out of soon. So tomorrow morning we will get trained in CPR and then on how to use the monitor he will be on and bring him home!
It's been a tough few days running back and forth to the hospital twice a day for a few hours at a time to nurse and just visit with him. The nurses have been absolute angels and I don't know what we would have done without them. We plan to send them a huge bouquet of flowers to thank them next week.
I'm so excited to get our little guy home tomorrow so we can just spend all weekend staring and snuggling with him. My mom will also be coming to stay for the weekend to help. I've been feeling much better as well, still very sore but better.
Here are some of the pictures from this past week.

When my mom and I got back from visiting Hunter this is what we found, guess Kristian was tired.
Celebrating that he had gotten most of his wires removed.
Finally free of all the tubes and wires.

Love those eyes.
