NO MORE OXYEN!!!



Thats right.... The equipment is out of our house. Boston PASSED HIS OXYGEN TEST!!! We did an over night test and got a call Christmas Eve that he passed. We are so happy:) I did cry for a few minutes. I guess I felt like all of the equipment was part of who he was. I got over it really fast when I realized that you could see two huge dimples that have been hiding under those darn stickers. He is such a happier baby. I can not believe how much easier it is for dave and I to take him anywhere. No more switching over the tubes, hooking up his foot, two people to carry him out, one to hold the cords and equipment and one to hold his car seat, no more tripping over the cords, or the beeping at night.... The list could go on and on. The main point is that we are opening up a new chapter in Boston's life. We could not have asked for a better Christmas gift ;)
