Tyler Monday Update

Tyler is having a pretty good day today. He has been entertaining all the doctors and nurses with saying his ABC's and singing songs. He knows how to ham it up!
Dr. Asselin is on service this week and when they came in to do rounds this morning she said she thinks it will likely be Wednesday before we can go home. She wants to make sure everything is in place as far as the IV antibiotics and such. She also wants to make certain that Tyler's blood cultures continue to be negative so we don't risk having to come back in. Also, we need to make sure that GI is on the same page and everyone feels confident with him going home. He will also have to go home on tube feeds so we'll have to learn how to do that. So, we're looking at a couple more days. As much as I want to get home, I also don't want to go sooner than we should. Goodness knows I don't want to have to come back anytime soon.

They weighed Ty this morning and he has gained a little more than a pound since he was admitted. That is very encouraging. He is looking a little puffy and such in his face so they took him off his fluids for awhile to see if that helps.

All in all, things are going well. I'll update again as we know more.
