Snuggles and 4th floor

We were able to snuggle with Micah yesterday, praise God. He didn't make it to the floor yesterday, but his voice improved so we were able to start feeding him. Nathan and I spent some time at the children's museum yesterday while Mark spent time at the hospital.

This morning I arrived in Micah's room to see that he had been completely weaned off oxygen overnight. Look, Mommy, no O2!
Micah is now out of the PICU (as of about 11:00am today). He's sharing a room with another baby, so I don't think I'll be sleeping there tonight. I had planned to room in with him, but the thought of being sleep-deprived due to TWO babies crying is a bit too much for me, especially since one of them isn't mine.

I don't know how long Micah will be in the hospital. His bloodwork showed elevated white counts this morning, so they'll be watching him for infection. I hope we can go home in a few days.

Here's a shot of Micah with the surgeon who repaired his heart. Thank you, Dr. G!

This is nurse Kim. She's the one who spent all day on May 5th coming out of surgery to tell us what was going on with Micah. She had a long day that day too.

This is some of the posse (aka, the Critical Care doctors who were caring for Micah in the PICU)

Yea!!! Micah is on the floor! Seeing these photos are emotional for me, as it sure brings back memories. I recognize some of the medical folk there. We pray for no infection and a complete speedy recovery so you can have Micah on your way home soon!
