June 19/08 Dominic is doing well he moved up to stepdown today just after lunch and very soon will be moving to his own room....only 2 days post op. He is miserable...but we can all understand that. He is starting to get okay at taking his pain meds, hopefully he is understanding they help. He does seem to be in a lot of pain. His sats are still low and he is relying on oxygen and draining quite a bit from two of his chest tubes. He is still doing extremely well though.
June 20/08 Dominic was moved to his own room last night and I have been able to stay with him in a parent bed. He walked down to the playroom today and coloured and played for two hours. He was able to eat 2 and a half chicken nuggets and had one of his draining tubes removed. They are a little concerned that he is not drinking enough fluids though. He is still receiving oxygen but not much. He is doing amazingly well.
