Of course as soon as I post a new post, everything happens. We have had a very busy morning. So I already posted about the chest tubes, the next thing then was another chest x-ray and then after that we had an echo done and then we were able to pull out his last IV as well. He was not happy during any of it but did really good at being as brave as he could be considering what he has been through. They will monitor him for the rest of the day then do another chest x-ray in the morning and if everything looks good we will get to go home tomorrow.

That is it for now. Hopefully he will take a nap as soon as we get his breakfast. I almost just ordered lunch as it is basically lunch time for him but I figured that he can just eat breakfast now and have lunch in the afternoon.

Wow. Sounds like you have both had a very tough day. Hopefully you can both relax and take a nap this afternoon. So good to hear that Jaden has all the tubes and lines out. That has to feel good to be done with those. Relax and take a deep breath. You are closer and closer to going home. Love, Janelle

Aaawwww. That made me want to cry when I read that Jaden was screaming at the top of his lungs. I can't even imagine...and he can't understand either. It's all so tough. I know it is hard but keep up the strength. Steph, you and your family are amazing!!!! Hopefully everyone gets rested and well enough to go home and stay home for the remaining recovery.

Amazing, isn't it, that a week ago the Dr.'s have Jaden's little chest open and now he's going home already!! Yeah!! What a ride it's been for everyone, but most of all Jaden! Get some rest - I think once you get home, he's going to be trying to keep up with Ethan! It will be hard to hold him back, but it may be the best medicine yet!
