Still Here.....

Hello,
Rounds came and went, and well.....we're still here :-( The cardiologist on staff wants to see Braden's sats come up before they send us home. He would also like to see us go home without oxygen. During rounds, the cardiologist was rubbing Braden's head and said (optimistically), "Maybe we'll send them home this weekend." Rich said the look on my face was indescribable. As I picked my chin up off the floor, I just happened to mention that we thought we were going home TODAY!!! Like I mentioned previously, his reasoning was behind Braden's cranky sats (mid to upper 70's) and still being on O2.

Braden's cardiologist, Dr. Cava, hasn't been up to see us yet though. He mentioned the other day that it might be okay to go home on oxygen. I guess we'll let the docs duke it out on when we can leave :-) We're slightly disappointed, but if that's the only reason keeping us here, I guess we can't complain.

Thanks for checking in,
Steph

Good things come to those who wait... It's not easy being a patient or showing patience, but you have showed us all that you have amazing strength! Hang in there! Keep smiling and your chin up :) Prayers and thoughts are with you! Gayle

Hey Bud,
I'm there with you in spirit.
It is a waiting game here as well... Bryce, My Mom and I flew to Atlanta on Tuesday. My Grandfather had hip replacement 3 weeks ago yesterday. He is on his second round in ICU, consistantly running a 103+ fever and obviously fighting some sort of infection. All the tests to date give us no indication of what it is. He is confused and crying out in constant pain. The Docs are all running around trying to guess at what might be causing this. We attempt to get him ready for an emergency procedure to open up the hip area and wash it out- hoping that is the cause. This would happen tomorrow on Friday. It's off to talk to more Doc's we go....
We love and miss ya.
Together in prayers, The Rybarik's and The Bowman's
