A great night.
Ethan did beautifully last night. He slept a lot more and is eating like a little piglet. He hasn't had to have his NG tube put back in because he is doing so well on his own. We are looking at a Monday discharge. Before discharge we have to take infant CPR and Ethan will need his newborn hearing screen and yet some more bloodwork. Autumn, to answer your question, they will let us go all the way home. It is only after surgery that they want us to stay within an hour from the hospital. That means that I will be able to sleep in myh bed and use my bathroom...it is amazing the things that you look forward to. I may stay with Katie until Thursday though because I have an incision check with Dr. Kirshon on Thursday at 2:30p. I don't really want to have to drive Ethan to Houston and back in one day three days after discharge. Plus he will have a follow up visit down here sometime the end of the week. We are going to blaze a trail between Lufkin and Houston. Older kiddos are heading out with Richard, Mimi and Paw Paw to the beach in Galveston this morning. Hopefully rounds will happen before they leave so we can get plans set for Monday.
