No more drain!
Well the snow from home made it all the way to Charleston today! I headed to the hospital early to make sure my Mom could get on the road in good time...Brandt had a good day with minimal fussing and short naps...said goodbye to my menfolk again:-(But I am so thankful for the happy Christmastime we had together, and hopeful to be headed home the end of this week as well.
Dr. Bradley came in later in the afternoon and pulled Brandt's drain. He reports that the healing in the incision still looks good. Brandt certainly didn't enjoy the procedure but I hope he has a more comfortable night with one less tube sticking out of him!
Even before he got his drain out he was back to his happy self today...I continue to marvel at how quickly these little ones heal from such major trauma. I was happy he was able to wear a little outfit on Christmas day, but the sleeves agitated his PICC line, so today we were back to just a diaper. We do NOT want to have to get that PICC line replaced. Dr. Bradley commented on how grabby he is with his incision site...he's all too happy to "help" with his bandage changes.
