He's back!

I can't tell you how happy I am to have my little man back. We went back in to see the doctor on friday and Sam came out a free man (baby). She (his doctor) took him off his oxygen completely! She said that his lungs sound 100% better. His O2 stats were up considerably. His ears, throat, and nose look wonderful. Apparently he made a miraculous recovery because they didn't expect him to be off his oxygen at night for at least another week or two.

It's amazing to see the change in him. He's back to his old self, tantrums and all. I'd take all the tantrums in the world not to have him so sick and lathargic. And he's soooo happy. He wakes up happy, he's happy all day, he's just such a happy baby!

But there has been other changes.

As of last night, he's decided he doesn't want bottles anymore!!! YAYAY!!! It had nothing to do with us either.

And... he's decided that he doesn't like wet/dirty diapers. You can always tell when his diaper is bothering him, he tried his hardest to get your attention to change him. He's started grabing clean diapers and bringing them to us and begains to strip down so we can change him. I have a feeling that potty training may be in the future. A lot closer than i had ever imagined. Good thing too cause having to change is diaper every time he wets it is killing us in the diaper department!

Other news:
*Brandy and her clan is soooo sick. I feel so bad for them. The girls have had a terrible bout of a nasty stomach bug. Poor Hailey had to be hospitalized because of dehydration. Zachary has a terrible cough, i beleive they said it was broncitis. I REALLY hope they get better soon, they've had their share of sickies to last a few years.

*I got a phone call from my dad last night. My Grandma Mauch is in a coma. Apparently she had another stroke and stopped breathing. The people at the rehabilitation center she's now staying at didn't find her until she was blue. They took her by ambulance to the hospital but on the way she stopped breathing again. I guess with all the recestitation, she ended up with a broken rib and a punctured lung. She is now at the hospital in a coma. I was told last night that they weren't sure she'd make it through the night. Mom has been with her since yesterday i guess. I haven't gotten any news yet today, so maybe that means that Grandma is still alive and breathing. I'm not sure that is exactly a good thing though. She's been wanting to go for some time now. Her husband passed away a couple years ago on Christmas day. She hasn't been the same since.

*Kaye is working her tail off. I got a email from her the other day. It's soooo good to hear from her. I miss my family dearly. And i really wish i could see my brother, i miss him tons. I'll be able to see Brandy and her family in July. I can't wait till then!!! Hopefully i'll be able to meet up with Kaye soon and hang out and scrapbook.
