Thursday Update.

Parker has had a great day. He didn’t sleep much last night so mommy didn’t sleep much either, but that is ok. He’s been up, reading, eating and drinking a tiny bit. He’s started to clue in that people in scrubs come in the room to do annoying things so he plays possum.

They are going to keep him in the ICU overnight tonight but if all goes well, we will move down to the airway floor as soon as a room is ready tomorrow. Being down there will allow him a little more freedom. He can come off of some of the monitors and visit the play room and go for wagon rides around the floor. Eventually, they might even let him venture further out into the cafeteria!

Right now the plan is that on Monday he will have another scope. If things go well until then and look good at that time, he will be released from the hospital. Depending on everyone’s comfort level, they may ask us to stick around here for a few days or we may be allowed to go home.

Today we saw Colin and his dad. They flew in last night for their first follow up scope. Colin looks great, his voice sounded great, and he was clearly happy to have been home to see his sisters and sleep in his own bed.

My friend Jill, who grew up in Cincinnati, is in town to visit her parents. She came by for a visit today and we had a fun lunch out and a trip to Target. Good old Target!

    yippee glad things are going well and you may be on your way out of icu, and then the hospital all together. Amanda loved that basketball game that is in the play room…play a few rounds for her. Hope you found the double chocolate chip cookies. I am having a few friends over for knit night and the drink of choice is margaritas…I will drink one in honor of you guys.

    Amanda’s mom, deb.
