I'm sorry- but is he not the cutest. How many kids smile this big when they're in the hospital.
Chest tube was removed this morning. Already he is moving around better and eating better. We actually SLEPT last night! (Between vitals and blood draws and x-rays) But this mornings x-ray went very well, and Jack was VERY cooperative, he held his arms out before they even asked and was so good. (The morphine is helping with his friendliness...)
So now that the tube is removed, depending on tomorrow's x-ray, we could be discharged tomorrow. A great birthday present for Josh..
I'm of course nervous, but he seems to be doing really well, and in addition to the pleural effusion, has had more time to heal from surgery. We'll still go home on O2, but we'll come back on wednesday to see how he is doing.
Thank you so much for all the prayers and kind words. And those friends I don't see often, I love you guys for even thinking of us. I'll let you know how he does today- and what the word is for tomorrow.
HERE WE GO!!
