So, the fact that lines are coming out are a good sign that our stay in ICU is coming to an end. They want to do an echo this afternoon to see how that ventricle is responding, and make sure it is doing it's job. They'll continue to do echos every couple of days to watch it to see how it adjusts to the new pressure.
Everyone here just loves Nate - they all think he's so cute and they love his hair. Very kind of them, since he does not show much love back! He's actually developed a very hilarious scowl with furrowed eyebrows that he gives to pretty much anyone he doesn't know!
We still trying to get going on the eating thing. He's drinking juice, hasn't thrown up since the 3 times in the middle of the night, which left me wearing a hospital gown!
We're planning on moving up to the cardiac ward later today. The chest tube is still in and surgery does not want to remove it just yet, the drainage is down to minimal now.
We're just so thankful we haven't run into any complications at this point....what a huge answer to all of our prayers!
I hope to get some pictures up soon, when I have some extra time. Thanks for checking in!
