I woke up this morning to a sweet boy grunting next to me in his crib, but went over to find a bloody mess!  He hadn't pulled his IV out, but he'd disconnected it from the lead, and it had bled out.  Try as they might to save it, they had to take it out.  Hopefully we'll be discharged today and it won't have to be put back in!  His right foot in the pic has his pulse ox on it, the left foot had the IV which is now just a bandage and tape.  I hope we can go home!  I don't want him to have to have another IV.  It took them too many tries the first time.  He is much perkier and I think we're ready to go home anyway.


  1. Poor baby! Ethan de-accessed his port many fun! I hope that he doesn't have to get stuck again and that home is on the horizon. (((HUGS)))

  2. gosh he looks good! Got some chunkies on his little thighs, he is using his hands much more often, it seems, and his forehead looks MUCH better. AWESOME, cept for that bloody mess thing. :) Hows the rattle?

  3. that poor boy wants out! he is saying i dont need this any more mommy lets go see my brother and sisters!!! he looks amazing now tho! such a good mommy!
