Wesley had a BIG day today and has done great so far! Wesley got off the respirator today and now has something called a CPAP to help him out. For the most part he is breathing on his own and is doing awesome. The CPAP will help him by keeping his lungs inflated as he breathes on his own. The doctor explained that it works similar to a dog sticking his head out of the window. Praise the Lord for this step forward and answer to prayer. Above is a picture of his new mask, the picture does not do justice to how cute this little man is. And yes, he does have lips. We have not seen our precious son's lips for the first 9 days because they were covered up. They are beautiful. The respiratory therapists did let us know not to freak out or be upset if he goes back on the respirator that it is really common and expected to go on and off especially with how young he is. Another cool thing about being off the respirator is that we got to hear him cry for the first time and see him yawn. Another small victory for the day.
