We had a really good confident nurse last night so I was able to go to the RMH comfortably. They do not have a place for us to sleep in the PICU and the family lounge was so full that someone had to sleep on the floor. I came back really early this morning and they said the night went good but that Jaden was a very light sleeper and woke up at least 5 times. They all held him and he went right back to sleep. The nurses all love him and always talk about how cute he is and "who would not want to come to work when they get to play with a baby like Jaden." That makes Sal and I feel so good. I also know he will be taken really good care of because he is so loved and spoiled here.
He overall looks wonderful and is doing very well. However, his sats are still a little low and the cardiologist has been concerned so they did some lab work to see if anything was going on that they could not see. Sara, to answer your question, they did have him on O2 and they actually had it higher then they normally do and it did not seem to help.
One of the residents just came in and said since we are staying at the RMH and are so close to the hospital that they are going to let us leave. So they will work up the paperwork and we will get to go. YEAH!!! Jaden and I will take the long way back and enjoy the day together. After all of this though, I was reassured how hard it is going to be after his surgery. Jaden is so active and wants to play with and explore everything. He will not want to be help down and hold still. He will get very angry. I am already knowing that.
So that is the good news for today. Surgery tomorrow AM. Pray hard.
Love to you all, Steph
