Wednesday Update

Hello,
Braden is doing great...he's sleeping right now. He had a good night, and all of his nurses can't get over how happy he is :-) We will find out in rounds today if we're going home. He'll be going down to get a chest x-ray (making sure there's no fluid build up after the chest tubes were pulled) in a bit. If that's all clear, we should be able to go home. He still hasn't been completely weened from the O2, but we can ween that at home. I guess this happens sometimes where the lungs have to get used to the new route of blood flow. We're fine with going home with O2, especially since Braden was on it just before his surgery.

We have taken comfort in your support. Thank you.

Love,
Steph

Braden left home for a short trip after Thanksgiving and now he's coming home for Christmas! Congratulations on all the success with the second surgery. You guys are very special and are part of a heart warming story. Have a safe trip home.
