KYLE IS OFF THE VENTILATOR!!! This is the best news we've received in 2 months! He is breathing well on his own and they will monitor him for nighttime breathing to make sure he doesn't need to be on a C-Pap machine (a setting that just forces some air into his lungs).

This new development will certainly help his rehabilitation plan and his outlook. Next, we just wait for that halo to be removed the first week of November which will make all the difference in the world.

They are starting a plan to begin feeding him solid food as well! Planning is under way for him to probably be switched over to the Rehabilitation side now that alot of his chronic conditions are being resolved. We'll know more tomorrow!

Thanks everyone for your prayers and notes of encouragement! They are really working!!!
