So we went on up to Primary's for Jack's labs today, and we decided to visit Alli, Kyle and Grant FIRST- as poking Jack with a needle and squeezing out his blood tends to make him want to get OUT of the hospital....So we revisited the PICU and got some encouraging news about Grant and his improved heart function. We saw a few of the nurses that helped us out while we were in there and then we got Jack's blood drawn. He did a really good job. The levels came back good, No more potassium issues. We are dropping the doses on the other two med's he is on, and he will be staying on O2 for sure until our visit to Dr. Su on May 18th.
So because of our unbelievable gratitude and joy for Jack's return to home, he has been somewhat spoiled... but you can't help it when you imagine where he was three weeks ago and you see his hands and feet looking like pin cushions. So Josh got Jack his first car- he has wanted one for awhile. He usually picks the pink one... ... but this one was RED like Lightning McQueen. Jack was THRILLED to take it outside, and other than his inability to steer correctly, he is a really good driver. Please take note of his obvious rapture in this first picture..
