New Year's Eve in Sick Kids Hospital. Hmmm.....well at least my hubby is here with me! Thanks Aunt Mandy for watching our kiddies tonight! Hopefully we aren't too much longer. We will know more later today hopefully.
Tyson was a bum yesterday evening. He had a snack at 8pm and then stayed awake till 11pm, at which time we gave him another bottle. Thinking he would sleep really well that night, right? Well... then he spit up pretty badly that he needed a bath, which woke him up again (at 11 pm)! Then he spent some time being content and looking around the room but then didn't settle well to sleep so we fed him another bottle again at 1:30 am. He finally settled to sleep by 2 am and then we didn't hear from him again until 6 am. That felt like a great sleep! He was able to go 4 1/2 hours between feeds, but it would have been nice if it was a little earlier in the evening! LOL I guess beggars can't be choosers.
This afternoon Tyson had some bloodwork done to check his enoxaparin levels (the injection he gets in his legs.) They just want to double check that his levels are ok otherwise they will adjust the amount he needs to have injected.
Later today the surgeon is going to have a look at the incision again and give us a rough plan of what to expect as far as how many days he needs antibiotics thru IV. The nurse practitioner mentioned this morning, it could be 5 days from when they started. That means we are here till Saturday-ish. *sigh* This is best for Tyson, but not so easy on us. We kinda liked being home and getting into a good routine before Brian has to go back to work and the kids go back to school. (we were also very spoiled to be home for Christmas!) But the incision is healing well and the more IV antibiotics he gets, the better chance of it not re-infecting again once we are at home.
So hopefully that means that once we are home, we can stay home!
I will keep you posted.
Have a great night everyone if you don't hear from us again today!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Brian, Mel and Tyson
