Too Funny!

One of the things that really comforts Chase is holding mommy or daddy's finger in his hand. Almost every time he's held, whether it's to calm him down, nurse him or get him to sleep, he'll always reach for a finger to hold. Especially now as he's recovering from his surgery an can't be held, he looks for a finger to hold and comfort him.

Hubs and I got a good laugh when we came in this morning to see him. His nurse rolled up a piece of gauze and put it in his hand as a good substitute. Not surprisingly, it worked!! Too funny!

We're happy to say that he had a great night last night and is going wonderfully. Our expectation is that he'll lose his RA line, arterial line, foley catheter and possibly chest tubes today. He's not on any meds intravenously and is only taking lasix, zantac, oxycodone (every 4 hours), Tylenol (every 6 hours) and now, his newest addition, enalapril, a blood pressure maintenance medicine that he'll be on for a few years if not forever. I'm so very pleased with his progress and am so very grateful for God's touch on him during this difficult time. His name be praised!

On a totally random note, hubs and I ate dinner at The Early Bird Diner ALL BY OURSELVES last night. I think that might be construed as a "date night!?" The first one in more months than I can count! ;)

  1. I love this post. Thank you for sharing all the good news, and thank God for answering prayers.

  2. Does this mean 7-C is right around the corner?? I'm so glad you finally had a date night. Praying that is the first of many more to come!

  3. Praying for a quick recovery and that you will be heading to 7C soon. Love to you from the Bentley's.

  4. This is just so sweet!! Kru likes to do the same thing. When he falls asleep in my arms and I don't have a finger free he holds onto the neck of my shirt. Boys are just too precious, so different from girls in so many ways!

  5. What a sweet picture of him holding the gauze. Chase is in my prayers. Glad he is doing well and I pray you all are home soon.
