Jack finally pooped. Thank heavens. It was a horrible and glorious moment simultaneously.
This morning they pulled his chest tube. It went well. He definitely felt alot better. AND, once he pooped and threw up at the same time... he felt REALLY GOOD, and was just ecstatic. He celebrated by yelling "It's working!!!"
The plan is to get him on a specific medicine regimine and make sure that the diuretic's are working properly. He won't be sent home on potassium (YES!) because the Enalapril, which is a BP medicine, helps with potassium. So we are going to wait today out andmake sure everything is good.
He is feeling MUCH MUCH better than yesterday, his color is back, he ate some "pirate cheetos" and has been drinking his Gatorade. So his is much more himself...
We'll let you know if there are anymore updates. (if anyone is still even following this story..)
