Home sweet home

Jax is home! Man I love surgeries that only keep us for one night. We like setting records for shortest hospital stay, instead of breaking our longest hospital stay record! He pulled his GJ out for the nurse. I warned them that he is a tube puller! So we had to wait for Specials Lab to have an opening to squeeze him in to get that tube switched. Never a dull moment!

I need to call neuro and make an appointment for them for two weeks. We are heading to Cali on Sunday for about 10 days, to look at houses and schools and such! Oh and of course, go to Disneyland! Can't let those season passes go to waste!

It always amazes me at how bruised and battered this kid is after such a short stay. Because he's on blood thinners, he bruises like a peach. So multiple tries for an IV leave lots of marks. Plus, they intubated him through his mouth to scope down his trach site, so he has nice red cheeks, that has turned this morning into a red mustache!
Last night...

This morning's mustache! Sexy!



His incision site. The VNS feels huge in his little body. You can see a bulge in his chest where it sits!

I can't believe the bruising he gets! Poor wittle man! What a trooper. I didn't realize they didn't turn it on immediately. A lot I don't know!
