Why is this while loop or function in general not working?

function miniDays($start){ // Function to return array of table header names with day of the week
if($start != ""){
      $days_of_the_week = array('Sun','Mon','Tue','Wed','Thu','Fri','Sat');
      $key = array_search($start,$days_of_the_week);
      while($x=1;$x<8;$x++){
            if($key == 7) {$key = 0;}
            $day.$x = $days_of_the_week[$key];
            $key ++;
                       }
}
return array($day1,$day2,$day3,$day4,$day5,$day6,$day7);
}

I am trying to return an array of short weekday names. When I feed 'Wed' into the above function, I need to get back an array like this;

$week_days = miniDays['Wed']; // Should have an array of weekday names now starting with "Wed"

The above array should start like this:  "Wed", "Thu", "Fri', "Sat", "Sun", "Mon", "Tue"

But it returns nothing. Can you see any typo in my function or any mistake that is obvious? Basically you feed the function a short week name and the array returned should list all the days in the week starting with the day you fed into it.

Thanks in advance.
