Is it day 10 or 11? Must be 11.....
Hooray!!!! We are one step closer to being out the door. They just removed Carter's chest tubes. Man were they huge. They were adult size tubes. No wonder he didn't like to drink or walk. Ouch!!! They sedated him with Ketamine in order to remove the tubes. He was high as a kite. The things he was saying was so stinking cute. He kept telling us how much he loved us. He is just now coming out of sedation and he says he is starving. He wants pancakes, waffles, starburst and everything in between. The doctors have told us that once the tubes were out we would see major improvement. I am hoping to be discharged either Friday or Saturday. They said the only thing keeping him here now is his fluid intake. He only had a few sips yesterday. He has to drink lots and lots today which they think won't be a problem with the tubes out. Yea!! He is one happy boy today!!!
