02 - Part 4

Well, we got the final word from the doctor on Thursday which confirmed what we already knew.  Joshua is good to go off oxygen.  Yay! 

We will keep the tank until next week in case of any post-surgery problems.  The pediatrician  would like us to still monitor him for a month.  I really hate the alarm, but I really like knowing how the little guy is doing.  For example, the above number means that he is getting plenty of oxygen.  The lower number means is his heart rate.  Based on how high it was I could assume that he was still awake.  It makes checking on him super easy.

We conveniently celebrated our oxygen free independence on Independence Day with a short trip to Bridal Veil Falls.  (We may or may not have taken the tank with us in case he had a problem with the higher elevation.)

Joshua slept through his first real outing.

After a short photo session we actually left.  Joshua was starting to burn and he isn't used to all of this sun.

I LOVE the family picture! And Joshua's fish hat - totally adorable (second in place though to Joshua himself who is seriously SO CUTE)! Congrats on bidding 'adieu' to the O2.

He still has his little hand wrapped around the tube while he is dreaming---:-)
