Update 6

R had a very uneventful weekend.  Which is this world, is a very good thing.

He has been moved out of the CICU and onto the main cardiology floor.  He had his chest tube removed yesterday, and is now completely off of oxygen.

He is a little under the weather this morning. He has a low-grade fever, but it's not anything they're too concerned about. They think he might have an unrelated ear infection or something along those lines.  They'll check him out in about an hour to see what they find.

He also still has pacing wires connected to his heart, but hopefully he can have those removed soon.

Right now, he's out having a sedated echocardiogram for an in-depth look at how his heart is healing so far.

Overall, though, R is doing great. They're even discussing discharge in the next few days, which would be absolutely amazing. We'll see - hopefully his cardiologist has good things to say today.

We were so lucky to have several of our close friends come over the weekend. Elle is on her way back from a fun-filled weekend in Maine. We've missed her terribly and are so excited to see her soon.  And to hopefully reunite her with her little brother!
