PICU day 11 (and hopefully the last night!)

Sorry, I once again don't have any pics of Jax to post. Thanks for your prayers for my Libby, I haven't heard anything today. I text her once this morning and didn't get a response. I will wait until she texts me. If she's lost her love I need to let her grieve and tell me in her own time, even though it is killing me.
Jax had another great day, he's getting back to his old self, squirming around in his bed until I finally laid it flat and moved the pillows so he can roll a little! I mentioned to them this morning that if he's able to stay off the vent all night can we just go home from PICU? The attending was a little nervous, she was like, "do you have help". Hello, whats the difference from normal? I take care of him everyday! Duh people.
Its crazy how being in the PICU for more than a couple of days brings back memories. I don't know how I did this for 120 days! I have been starting to go crazy wanting him home after just 11 days, how ever did I do it? Plus not holding them for long periods of time when they are just to sick to get out of bed. I went months without holding Jax, and 5 days of not holding him was making me crazy! I'm just glad he did so well this time. Yes, he was critically ill, requiring mechanical ventilation and showing how sick he really is, but his pressures stayed up, avoiding art lines and pressers. And we got IV's in him, avoiding central lines and those infections!
So I'm going up to the hospital tomorrow prepared to bring my little man home, we have a lot to do. Our background checks finally came back, so tomorrow we can fax our home study to DCSF. So hopefully this week we can go meet this baby girl! Also we have a trip to get ready for! Jax is so excited to see his girlfriend Zoey for her birthday! And play in Disneyland with them, Ella, and Peanut! Could it get any better?
