Tonight all is well. Kasey is asleep and has been for an hour now. Hopefully his days/nights are beginning to turn back in the right direction. He got up three times today to walk the halls and on one walk the physical therapist had him tackle a set of stairs. He did them wonderfully! But it really wore him out. In my last post I forgot to add that we were admitted to hospital at 4 ft. 8 in. and when we checked his height yesterday he was an even 5 ft. He gained 4 inches from surgery!! It is weird to me to be almost eye to eye with my baby.
His chest xrays looked better today and he was weaned from 4 liters of oxygen to half a liter. Hopefully tomorrow he will hold his own and won't need oxygen at all anymore. He will get his last dose of antibiotic tonight and then that will end all things going in via I.V. It is quieter on the pediatric floor so we are enjoying just being able to chill out a bit.
Yesterday the nurses were being overly optimistic when they said we might be out by the end of the weekend. The doc came in today and said it is looking like next week sometime. So, we settle in a bit more -- I unpacked the M&M fun packs and set up my essential oil diffuser!
Today is day 11 of being in the hospital and we are feeling it. We are both ready to be home and we are missing our family being all together...Kasey's even thinking about the dog so much he told Eric he should leave the hospital early tonight to let Tuffy out of his kennel. He is always thinking of others! Overall, we are doing well here and hope you all are also.
