Off the CPAP

They took Kanyon off the CPAP this morning! He is now breathing pretty much on his own. They still have tubes in his nose that provide a little bit of oxygen when he breathes, but it doesn't push the oxygen for him - he has to breathe it in himself. Doing this has caused his breathing and his heart rate to fluctuate somewhat, so they have had to help him regulate it a little bit. If they have to intervene too much, they'll put the CPAP back in, but this is still great progress. His feedings are up to 16cc now, so he is still eating good. Great job, Kanyon!
