Xander Breathing

Here is a video of Xander breathing last night (for those of you who don't follow my Facebook page).
The rasping is him with croup and the wheezing sounds are his normal sounds from tracheomalacia.
This is his second night with croup and these sounds were better enough for me to feel comfortable keeping him at home and not going back to the hospital. Be warned, it is very sad to watch.
It is so hard for me to watch him struggling to breathe constantly. He is getting better with the tracheomalacia but he still makes awful sounds when he is eating, sleeping or lying down. We also have to be careful not to let him get too excited because the harder he breathes the worse it is. 

These last few months have been a trail for sure, full of ups and downs, scares and moments of peace. 
Xander turns 12 weeks today and we are so thankful for his little life! We believe strongly that he has a MEGA destiny and we are looking forward to the glory of God being revealed even more in his life!
