They grow up so fast . . .

So, today when Bubba and I made our trek to the hospital, we arrived to some pretty good news about little Colton.  He is now off the ventilator and on CPAP (that same machine used for sleep apnea) and he has outgrown his blood pressure cuff.  His old cuff was about the size of a Band-Aid.  This new one is a little bigger.  Colton's nurse gave me the old cuff.  I will be sure to get a picture of it along with something else so you can see the comparison.

Now, it's only fair to let you know that little Mister Sean has been off the ventilator since Tuesday (the 8th).  He is such the over-achiever!  He is on SiPAP, which is a lot like CPAP (but I can't really tell you much more than that).  Our concern with Sean is that his bowels aren't working like they should.  He has a belly full of air and it just looks so uncomfortable. :( 

Of course, we will be going back to see them tomorrow.  It's Bubba's last day off work.  He returns to work on Monday.  This is really going to stink.  The boys will be 90 minutes away and I still can't drive.  Heck, I don't even see my doctor until January.  I won't be cleared to drive until then.  Hmmmm . . . who wants to bet I will be driving before then??  

Off to bed so I can get up bright and early to go see my boys . . .

  1. Cuda you better not drive without clearance, good God if you hurt yourself and end up in a hospital you might not see them at all... I am sure you can get someone to drive you, even if DH has to drive you before he goes to work and pick you up after and you spend the day at the hospital. I'm watching you.
