Today is Jacob's Big Day! He is being extubated from the ventilator!!! We are so thrilled at how well he is doing, but at the same time we are terrified of him breathing almost all on his own with just the help of a high flow cannula. When we first toured the NICU before Jacob was born, the nurses didn't just hand me a tissue, they handed me the whole box and told me to take it with me. Today at morning rounds they again gave me a tissue then just handed me the whole box. It was the first time I cried because of hearing good news. It is our big day as well. Today, at 29 days old, we get to hear Baby Jacob cry for the first time. We get to hear our baby's voice.
