He's Breathing on His Own!!

Sid was off the ventilator the very first day he was born. I can't even believe it! He's now on what's called a "C-Pap", which basically just helps keep his lungs inflated so they don't collapse. But he's breathing room air all on his own.

Yesterday (Thursday, July 8th), Sid underwent a little surgery. He had a PICC line inserted in his tiny arm. It was really rough to see him have to go through this, but it is definitely for the best. Babies' veins are extremely tiny and fragile, especially at his size, so to have to constantly prick him for IV's is painful. This line is basically a tiny catheter that will remain in him instead of having to start new IV's on him every day or so. It's heartbreaking to have to see him bandaged up. Seeing him like this is the hardest thing I've ever had to experience in my life. He's so strong, stronger than I'll ever be. Sidney is my hero.
