2 lbs. and still breathing good!

Well, Kanyon has had a big day. He reached the 2 lb. mark - yeah! Actually, 2 lb. and .02 oz. to be exact. Big boy! And he is STILL off the ventilator! It's been over 38 hours now on the CPAP - praise God! This is a huge accomplishment. They also took out his IV today, so he'll now be taking just Jaymie's milk, plus a few vitamins through his feeding tube. Thanks for your continued prayers - he's doing great!
