Ever since Oakes had his chest closed today Greg and I have been standing by. He has been so peaceful all afternoon and his breathing isn't nearly as labored as it has been in the past. He has started twitching and moving around a bit, which has been comforting to see. It is just amazing to look at him and think about all that his little body has been through in just 13 days. We are so thankful that he has done this well so far, and we are convinced it is because of the vortex of love and healing that surrounds him! I know Greg has said it, but thanks for all of the love and prayers, and please, keep them coming!!
