Tuesday Update

We've been moved up to the 4th floor and out of the PICU!! We were supposed to be up here yesterday, but they are packed up here and didn't have a bed for him.

All Braden is on now is an O2 nose tube, and one IV in his wrist. The IV is not being used for anything right now, they still have it in incase there was an emergency and they needed to administer a med.

We had a great day with him yesterday and so did the nurses in the PICU. Different people kept stopping in to see "the happiest baby in the PICU" and he would give everyone his big smiles.

After we fed him at 9 he was so happy and smiling away at us as we played with him and his toys. We even got our first giggles out of him. They were pretty cute.

Between 930 and 1130 last night was a different story though. He got the hiccups (probably from the giggles) and was very uncomfortable then due to his sore chest. It didn't look like fun.

Thursday looks like a good target day for going home at this point. We will see how the next couple of chest x-rays look and if he does well when he starts to wean of his O2. One doctor is pushing for tomorrow and going home on oxygen, which wouldn't be a big deal to us as long as we go home.
