Yesterday Amon was looking around more later in the evening. And he has been steadily losing more and more wires & other attached medical equipment today.
This morning when I woke up they had taken off his “headband” which measured the oxygen in his brain and his internal jugular line in his neck that went straight to his heart. Medical stuff just blows my mind. During the day they also pulled his pacing wires and two stomach tubes which is awesome.
He is still having stomach/eating issues and does have fluid in one of his lungs, but he really is doing just incredible. And they let us move out of the PICU and up to a regular room…which is so nice.
When we got the news we packed up and hit the patient transport elevators.
And now we’re settled in his new room. It’s been kind of crazy busy day with more x-rays and an echo and I took a CPR class which they make all parents take. I’ll be honest in the fact that I’m pretty terrified to take him home now, but we still have some time here at the hospital and it is very good to know infant CPR now…just freaked me out a bit
But for sure all the doctors and nurses and our surgeon agree that A) He really is completely rockin’ this open heart surgery recovery thing and B) His hair is still really fabulous.
