Movin' On Up

He got out of the PICU today.

He's spent most of his time since Saturday afternoon asleep.  But it's been a good sleep, a healing sleep.  Yesterday his heart rate and respiratory rates were still a bit high, but today they're down where they should be.  

His gut continues to move along the way it should, and tonight his girth measured about 64 cm.  That's down from the 77 cm at the worst of things.  Yeah, he was that big and swollen.

So tomorrow we'll start introducing formula again, very slowly. 

He's still got a ways to go before we get out of h
ere.  Right now the thinking is that he needs to be back to full feeds and hydration for a couple days, to make sure he keeps on the right path, before we make it home.  

So here's to boring days, full of not much and just working on feeling better.

Fingers crossed....  

It's no coincidence that four of the six letters in health are "heal."
