Home Sweet 15th floor!!!

The past few days have been great! I took Elise to see High School Musical yesterday and she had fun and loved it...We all went to the zoo today and had a good time at the zoo boo. Everyone has gone home now and I finally have a few minutes to update this little blog. Okay...Saturday Ethan's drain tubes were removed as well as his IV (it had failed) and arterial line in his arm. Today the arterial line in his neck was removed and he was able to be held against my chest. He is on Tylenol for pain on a schedule and can have other pain medication as needed. He is now on the 15th floor again and is doing great. He is no longer on oxygen and is holding around 80 on his oxygen sats. He is only on a pulse ox monitor like he was before surgery. Pictures soon. Updates sooner!
