Mom's on Diaper Duty already. The nurse asked us both if we wanted to help change Elli's diaper, and Brian quickly said "I'll run the camera, you can do the diaper" Elli didn't mind a bit, but it was a little tricky with the silo, chest tube, abdominal tube, the cardiac lead wires and the temperature probe all to deal with, but I think it went pretty smooth.
In still other news, our first ECMO roommate Meghan, is doing very well, she has been extubated for a couple days now, has no more IV's and is drinking mamma's milk. She is doing so great and should be heading home relatively soon. Also, my friend Heather from St. Francis Hospital recently had her baby boy by c-section, he weighed over 9 pounds and was 23 inches long. So a big Congrats to the Archer family. And Brian just found out the the Koger family is back in the hospital with Wyatt, please keep their family in your thoughts and prayers as well, as he reherniated and had to have surgery this evening. He came out of the surgery with a super fancy patch (made of his other patches, Gortex, Alloderm and wire) and the plan is to extubate him tomorrow. There is a link from our page to his if you want to check up on him tomorrow. Well it's getting pretty late. Going to give Elli some kisses and then head back to RMH to try to get some sleep in anticipation for the weaning tomorrow. Thanks to all who have been so positive through our entire journey, the comments keep us positive as well. Thanks again! Brian, Cassi and Elli
