Last night (knock on wood)

Tonight should be our last night. The plan is still to go home tomorrow. It was a fight with the RT's because we are supposed to room in after our last class. But the attending fought for me to get us home tomorrow. After my nervous breakdown this morning, finding out that once again, our dossier wasn't submitted. When I got to the hospital this morning I looked like I'd been run over by a truck. My eyes were puffy and red. The poor attending thought something serious was wrong. But she knew she had to get us home ASAP, before I need the looney bin!
They are doing an upper GI today to see if his nissen is intact. And tomorrow before we go we will do another echo to see what his pressures are after starting drugs and the vent at night.
Jax looks good. And I can't wait to get home and do summer stuff again. Just live life, not live in a hospital. Thats what I want for him!


I bought him a portable DVD player that I could put on his bed. It seems to be a big hit!!

I'm so glad to hear that you will hopefully be coming home tomorrow! I'll think positive thoughts that nothing delays that.

I'm sorry to hear about the dossier! That is ridiculous!!!! I wish there was something I could do to help. I bet you wish there was something YOU could do. Insanity!!!

Thought a lot about you today. My dad had another stroke and is in the ICU at the new IHC in Murray. We gave the DNR orders. They didn't expect him to make it through the day. But he did. I can't imagine having to make that decision for a child.

Tomorrow is a good day to go home from the hospital. Praying that tonight is your last night as Jax doesn't pull any fast tricks!

WE LOVE YOU JAX! You are such a trooper and give your sweet mama some of your beautiful smiles today. She needs your smiles -

Lacey - keep pluggin along. Your doing awesome. God has this all under control. Right down to the timing of your dossier submission.
Don't sweat it. Just stay focused on family and fun right now. All that other will work out just fine.
