I can't believe we are home!
We actually were able to sleep last night, we got moved to a section with a few kids recovering from heart surgery, so it was pretty quiet. Well very quiet in comparision to the very active ICU part we had been in.
He seems fine still and without too much drama we got the rest of the samples we needed for the rest of the testing.
I feel strange being home. I can imagine what it feels like for someone to come home from a war. You come home and everything is normal except you had just came home from somewhere stressful and you can't forget what you saw.
Anyways, Scotti was happy to see me but my daughter is too busy playing to care. LOL! I did get some kisses but very reluctant ones!
We have a doctors appointment on tuesday morning with our regular peditrican.
The only and only at all "news" we got is that he had had some acid show up in a blood drawl from his first time in the hospital. And that he has not gained weight at the rate that he had before. He's little and thats fine but they want us to work on getting more into him...that and to add butter to some of his meals for the fat! LOL!
We have about 1-2 weeks for the metabolic tests to come back...I asked what they were looking for and they said that they are testing more rare things w/in the system. So I guess we'll see.
Thank you all again and again for your prayers. And I ask that you just keep us in them for a while...and I want to ask you to pray for the other kids that have stays in ICU's. I felt so lucky for us to be going home but I can't begin to tell you how I feel for all the kids that are still there. I can't imagine having gone through this experience without having the other Mothers there. Such amazing, strong and brave women, not to mention some tough kids!
I'll try and post some photos a little later...
xoxo Leah and Cody and family!
