Recovery is going really well! Asher got moved out of intensive care last night. He is no longer on sedatives, and is only on Tylenol for pain. He is also completely off of oxygen. Yay! He seemed pretty uncomfortable yesterday, and had a hard time relaxing and sleeping. But he is making up for it today! They removed his chest tubes this morning, and gave him morphine to reduce the pain beforehand. And he has been a zombie ever since; he is finally starting to snap out of it. And I am feeling like less of a zombie, also. Baby Jacob has slept through the night for the past 2 nights, so I feel very well rested!

Asher has been very popular- His Grandma Atkinson came on Monday, and his Uncle Jonathan. Tuesday his Grandpa and Grandma James came for a visit, and Adam and I brought baby Jacob, Taylor, and Jonathan to visit. Today Asher's Aunt Kimberly and cousin Camille came to visit. It has been so nice to see our family here- Thanks for the visits! Also, thank you to everyone helping watch the kiddos, and for the lunches. We really appreciate it.

Asher had an echo done of his heart today. Dr. Kaza, his surgeon, came and spoke with us and said everything looks great. He could potentially come home tomorrow morning! So amazing. Again, thank you for all the prayers and support. I'll post again tomorrow.

  1. I have been trying to post - dumb blogger, we do not get along! I am so relieved to see things going so well. Even baby Jacob is being a good boy! What a gift! With Ashers new "plumbing" hopefully you can be surgery free at your house, well after the finger heals. I hope to see a "we are home" post tomorrow! Loves,
