We've MOVED - down the hall!
We are still in PCTU, but since Darren is stable and off the vent we are out of the OPEN bay!
We have a DOOR (yes - it is glass) with a curtain - some privacy :)
Darren is doing GREAT!
He is still quite sleepy...and when he wakes up is definitely complaining of pain :(
Darren did drink 1oz of water and had a little bit of popsicle chips. Apparently he is cleared to eat/drink clear liquids...but really is still mostly sleeping.
The next step is to continue to reduce his meds. and sedation. His levels are still too high to move to the "regular" pediatric cardiac floor.
It's ONLY Saturday - I am amazed at how well Darren is doing - PRAISE GOD!!
Keep those prayers coming friends!
It sure is hard when Darren reaches those little arms up to me and wants to be picked up....I can't wait until I can snuggle him :)
