Overall he had another good day. He's still struggling on keeping some of his numbers good enough to stay on the CPAP, so it's possible that he'll be back on the vent tomorrow. The doctors may possibly put him back on it just for his MRI, and then back to CPAP. We'll just have to see what the day brings. Little Carter even sucked on a paci for a little while today. He'd better keep practicing so he can start drinking from a bottle.

We also wanted to give another thank you to all of our family and friends for pulling us through all of this. We really don't know what we would do without all of your love and support. Our sweet nieces made some cards and poems for their little cousin, and we wanted to share one of them with everyone. This was written by our darling niece Samantha who is in the sixth grade:

"Sadness is like the color blue.
All I can think about is Carter.
I see pictures of him.
I feel the window.
I smell the hospital.
I hear people talking about him.
I taste the salt of my tears."

WOW. That was such a sweet poem, Little kids amaze even when you think they don't fully know what's going on.
Still praying for carter.
