EKG's, Naps and Wrinkles

Today we are going home.
It's been 17 long days.
His x-ray looks much better.
He finishes his last IV antibiotic dose today,
so no PICC line at home.
One less thing to worry about.
His vent settings are higher,
which will hopefully help keep that left side open.
He has one week left of his oral antibiotic
and then we can put this stay behind us.
I'm looking forward to having him home
and hopefully stay well through the rest of this winter.
Thanks again for all of your love, prayers and support.

Hurray! I am so glad to read that you are going home today. :) I just love Ben's wrinkly head. It looks so soft. I would rub it all the time, I'm sure of it!

Glad you are headed home. Everyone will be happy that their Benji is back in his own bed. What happened to all his hair? Did someone go crazy with the scissors?

Nice wrinkles, but I love his beautiful hair too. I love the picture of Becky sleeping in Ben's bed with Ben wide awake watching over his mom. XOXOXOXO Welcome home Benji!!
