Enjoying Some Fresh Air

 Yesterday Levi's pulse oxygen levels were good during his nap, and he ate and drank a little. We were thankful he didn't need an IV and that we were given the okay to go home. When he woke up, he wanted down and immediately tried buckling himself in his car seat.
Here he is on his way out of the hospital. I'd say he was ready to go!
The stickers they put on his cheeks to hold the oxygen tubes on are very difficult to get off. I haven't had the heart to try too hard yet. Please share advice if you've had to get these suckers off your kid before! Next time I am going to ask a nurse to do the dirty work before we leave!

The boys both felt a little better today. We even got to enjoy some time outside after dinner. A couple that lives down the street gave the boys permission to play in their driveway and backyard. Adam explored their big tree tonight and was thrilled to get some climbing in.
And this was just what was needed today. A chance to enjoy the ordinary...to explore a backyard...to breathe the fresh air...to be renewed.

"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called THE PRESENT."

If they have to use tape on the face again ask for the NICU tape ours much gentler. My daughter had issues with the adhesive on the tape and I've tried them all.

So glad he is feeling better!!!! We had adhesive remover, but I can't remember the name. They gave it to us after Hailey's OHS.

I assume you got them off already, but baby oil works well.
