Tuesday Was Better
After yesterday, I was kind of dreading the hospital today but of course I could not avoid being there. Sean (is the baby without the hat in these pictures) was a little fussy in the morning and was desatting (dropping oxygen levels) here and there. I was worried about him again and my confidence was shaken a bit by the last few days. The afternoon went better - he seemed more peaceful and was breathing nicely. The doctor talked to me about possibly taking Sean home with a monitor when he has made his five brady-free days. A home monitor sounds daunting but I will be a nervous wreck when he comes home so maybe it's good. I'll post more when I know more about it.
Evan (pictured with a hat on above) had his feeding tube taken out because he's taking all bottle feeds now. I was happy to see his little chubby two chinned face! He seems to be doing good. Like I posted yesterday, I do not want to get too excited. He has a history of setbacks so I don't want to celebrate yet. So just check out his little cutie pie face!
Tomorrow Steve is off so we are taking Gretchen to Six Flags. Part of me would rather be at the hospital but it's better to take advantage of the time we can spend with just her since we will not have that kind of freedom very soon. When I think of it that way, I know it is the right thing to do.
