The Dr's just did rounds. They are pleased with Ash's progress. The drain in his belly will be removed later today, so he will just have the one chest tube. And that will be removed tomorrow. His IJ line, which measures central venous pressure, is also going to be removed today. He is under no sedation, no meds for his heart. Just a little tylenol! He is getting maintenance fluid in an iv, we will try feeding again soon. He is getting lasix to help him urinate, though he did just go a little. Yay for pee! They are decreasing his oxygen, also, and he is tolerating it well. They just did a chest xray, and he's resting now. The plan is to move him to the 3rd floor, out of the CVICU, tomorrow. A week from now, we might be headed home! Yay!
