Peds unit

It was a looooong night but already the morning makes it more than worth it. I came in at midnight to stay with Alex who was moved to the regular pediatric unit overnight. The unit is wonderful but the staffing is far less than the nicu. Sleep was not to be had for either Alex or I with hourly checks but ofcourse Alex is cheerier than his mom.

What DOES make his mom happy is that Alex started peeing around the catheter so they already took it out and he's back to doing this on his own. Can you hear our sigh of relief from here?

It gets better!!! Neurosurgery came in this morning And said after they take the bandages off today, he is free to come home!!!!! Can't wait to post pics from home later today.
