Today has been a pretty good day. Amon has had a few ups & downs, but way more ups…and that is awesome. Today he is off all oxygen and his heart is doing great. He is having some stomach issues and still hasn’t eaten yet, but if he does well through the night we’ll get to move out of the PICU and up to a regular room sometime tomorrow. Yipppeee! Just another step closer to home.
Amon is now giving a permanent thumbs up, which is pretty awesome.
We’ve rigged up his little frog toy he likes so much for when he opens his eyes. He actually swatted at it a few times too. It was really nice to see him do something other than just lay there all pitiful like. I so want to see a smile though…that’s my own personal mom goal…get him to smile again.
I got to see the wee Kelleys today and that was completely great. They didn’t get to see Amon though because 2 out of 3 have been sick. So we hung out in the Ronald McDonald waiting room and ate snacks.
And they showed off really weird poses under the PICU sign. They all crack me up, but I laughed out loud at Huddy when this picture loaded onto my computer…he’s a special one for sure.
The nurses put Amon’s name on his door and the kids drew pictures for him too. It makes me weepy for some reason…in a happy, sweet way.
Harper drew Amon…looks just like him. And that’s a puppy on his shirt, not a baby in his belly.
I got a little crafting in today. I’m going to string these together on some twine. They are going to make a mighty fine garland.
Amon’s globe is getting lots of love. His nurses have been crazy wonderful. We have just been so blessed.
And that was our Sunday. Thank you for you continued prayers. We really and truly appreciate them.
