I LOVE reading about Ethan's wonderful progress (through his carepage too!), I'm soo glad he is off the vent during the day!

I'm also very happy you've decided to come back and share the updates with the rest of us. :)

Ethan's second sleep study went very well and WE ARE OFFICIALLY APPROVED TO BE VENT FREE!! It's been a long time coming. We did have to add some oxygen back into the mix at night, but nothing at all during the day. Very exciting. He is also doing a lot better with eating (this month anyway)! He's gone from taking maybe 5-10 bites to eating 1/2 jar per sitting. Great gifts coming right on time for his 2nd birthday in a few weeks!

Anniversaries...2 years ago yesterday my doctor told me that Ethan would die in utero due to lack of nutrition and oxygen. He would be stillborn. 2 years ago today I went into the hospital to wait. A month later, on May 15, 2008, my baby started his fight outside of the womb...and won! You wonderful ladies helped so much in getting me through that awful month, especially since my husband was way less than supportive! We love you all!
