Movin' on up...

After lunch on Tuesday, Caden was able to sit up in a chair for a while in the ICU and have a Popsicle. 
Yes, that child was dependent on a ventilator just 12 hours earlier!!!  Amazing. Then we had him walk 2 laps around the ICU. Not long after that, they were moving us up to the surgical step down unit. YEA!!!  
Sweet baby!  He watched a little television and played with the game system in the room and he was back to sleep again. 
He was finally able I get some good rest Tuesday night. Wednesday morning, Caden's nurses removed his bandage and he was super happy to get into some regular clothes. 

We had to start walking the halls again today. 

He did 2 laps and them came back for his first real food since Sunday. (I don't consider Cheerios real food!)

After lunch, he was pooped!  Here is what we saw for the next hour and a half. 

Caden also had some very sweet visitors today.  Someone was super excited to see his big brother. 

He even got some letters and goodies from his class. 

We have also been working with this spirometer to help us take deep breaths. 
We are making little steps towards home every day. Keep on praying for this little guy's healing and endurance. Thanks for all of your prayers and support!!
