These pictures were taken in early April after Oakes' Cath procedure. As I carried Oakes out of the hospital with no tubes, no tape, no machines or support of any kind I was so very thankful. It felt as though I was bringing home an entirely new baby. For several days after coming home Oakes was alert and happy, he was eating well, sleeping well and seemed to be thriving. This is the baby that we are praying comes home with us shortly!
