Well, we did an ultrasound last night and everything was looking good. There are no signs of fever/infection, so the doctors are pretty sure we can go home today. They haven’t taken his IV out yet because one of his nurses a few days ago came down with the chicken pox. They are running a blood test on Emmett, which may throw a wrench in the whole going home thing. Everyone else in the family is either immune/vaccinized, but E hasn’t gotten that one yet.
On another positive note, he drank about 80 mils total last night (~3 oz). This is a big improvement on the 10 mils he has drank for me in the previous 2 days. We’ve got a follow up appointment next week with our cardiologist where we’ll talk about the G tube, so we’ll see how it goes.
Thanks to everybody for reading. Hopefully our life will settle down for a few days and Lauren can go back to putting posts about Vampire Weekend for you to listen to. I plan on taking a shower and a nap (after the boys and I play the Wii, of course).
