Jaden had a pretty good night last night. This morning Kelly and I got here and he woke up and gave us a little smile. He was up for about an hour just kind of hanging out. I even held him for about 5 minutes and then he was way to uncomfortable so I put him back in his bed.
He just went back to sleep. He is doing a lot better with his pain and being a little more happy. He did not eat much last night but this morning has already taken 4 oz. Hopefully today can be a really good day for him and maybe they can take out at least one chest tube.
I just wanted to say again how wonderful the RMH is. Two days ago I had come back there late from a long day at the hospital. I walked in my room and found a little gift from them. There was a cute poem talking about "On the 12th day of Christmas the RMH gave to me..." It was really cool to find after my day. Then yesterday there was another gift. They will be doing a gift everyday I am sure...
There were also plates of home make Christmas cookies in big ziploc bags sitting on the counter for us to help ourselves to. This morning there were breakfast bags that different groups always make and drop off there. This time, there were little keychains that stated things like love, family, etc. This place just makes life so much easier when staying at the hospital. It is wonderfully decorated with Christmas decorations and many different Christmas trees. It is a place you could be happy at if you can't be at your own home especially for Christmas. They have a little gift shop and Sal and I went there and got the kids t-shirts that have a huge pop tab on with a very little person holding it above their head. On the back it says, "support the RMH which supports the families which supports the children." It is so cool. All of those proceeds go directly toward the house. If you ever want to give, I would definitely give to this place!
I know they have a wonderful Christmas planned for the families with a ton of wonderful gifts for the children. I was telling Sal the other day that if we lived in the cities and I were to get a job, it would definitely be with this organization.
Thanks for the prayers. Love you all!
