home!

Sorry it took so long to update...We are home! Miles was released at about 3pm. The echo today showed some residual leakage from right to left so he is re-oxygenating some blood - which doesn't explain the pulse ox being low. His pulse ox leveled out at 94% and since we got the echo today we don't have to go back to the cardiologist for 6 months! cool! If we weren't going to be able to have the echo we would have had to go back in a month. I think the lower pulse ox is from the little collapse of his lung which will be fixed with him just getting up and around. Anyway, he is doing just great! He didn't want the IVs out (he wanted to leave them in forever) and we came home with the leads stickers still on - he wants those on forever too. I did get to bring home some of the adhesive remover so it won't hurt to take them off but he doesn't believe me. His face is a bit puffy again but not bad.

Anyway, I am exhausted! I can't wait to go to sleep! Thanks for all the prayers!

OH - and Thank you, thank you, thank you Sandra and Deanna for watching Riley and letting him stay and play with your Connor's :) He had so much fun and I cannot begin to tell you how very much it is appreciated!!!!!! You guys are AWESOME!

Home rocks! I think the place is highly underrated. It's only when you leave the hospital that you can really appreciate being home! I'm glad Miles' sats are picking up and that they are expected to improve further after his lung issues resolve. I hope he continues to do well. Are the seizures well-controlled now?
