I am one happy mommy today!! David is doing sooo much better! The CT Scan came back normal so that was a big relief, he has been eating today, not much but a little, no more belly aches, and he feels better. They took out all 3 chest tubes today, and I even got the doctor to take out his foley cath, so he was a happy guy this afternoon. He ate some cereal for breakfast, a grilled cheese with some soup for lunch, and we ordered him up some mac and cheese for dinner. Plus Dr. Tony wants him to drink some protein shakes as well. His mind set has been much better too, he is ready to start roaring out of there. He even requested that Julie take him out for a walk today, but she told him he still wasn't ready for that maybe tomorrow or the next day. However he eats all of his meals sitting up in a chair and he is starting to feel better overall. He still has the tongue problem and the doctors think it could be an allergic reaction to one of the meds so they are messing around with that and trying to get that in order a bit. But they promised me today that he wouldn't become the first "heart transplant freak show" and they will get that tongue problem solved soon. We hope to be out of the ICU by Wednesday, which would be fantastic.
Today was a good day, and I needed a good day, I sorta had a rough emotional night last night and so this was good news!!
