Well, E pooped a little bit this morning and he is off the morphine. He is still taking Paracaetamol (Tylenol equivilant) for the pain and some IV antibiotics. We are one step closer to leaving the ICU, but they really haven’t let us know when to expect that. At lunchtime today they started a slow drip of milk down his NG tube into his stomach. He hasn’t thrown up yet, so they will keep increasing this as time passes and maybe tomorrow or the next day we can try a bottle. So good news on all accounts. I’m sure Ren will write a longer post later, but that is about it for me.
On a side note, there are so many sad stories here in the PICU. I don’t know how the staff does it day in and day out. I know that we have much more hospital time in our future, and it depresses me a little because I don’t really like it that much.
