He’s OFF! :)

Published by at 10:00 pm under Uncategorized

Hello!! Just a quick update! They DID take him off the ventilator today and he is doing great!! He is on just a TINY bit of oxygen, but they think it’s just fine (still coming off sedation ect) He looked at me today and knew it was me! I showed him his favorite blankey and stuffed animals, I could tell he was happy. Poor thing is trying to talk but his poor throat is soooo sore. I still think it will be a slow recovery, Tuesday marks the 1 week point, I am just crossing my fingers we can bring him home Sunday! (see…I am not even asking for the WHOLE weekend, just some! ;)) Poor Brett (my 5 yr. old) he’s really been through a whirlwind too, I can’t wait for things to get back to “normal”!

Please check out the design team blogs (on sidebar) for the last Jacksonbelle Embellishments sketch for the contest! I am SURE they will knock your socks off! 😀 Thanks so much again for all your support, it means the world to me! HUGS!

    What great news! I am so happy he is doing much better.

    I am so happy he’s doing better. I know it’s so scary to see your children sick, especially THAT sick. Poor baby, and poor you! I hope nothing but good things for him.

  7. I am so happy that he is doing better! His throat will be sore only for a little while and the best part is at 2 yrs old he won’t remember much of it. Unlike the rest of the family. Darn kids, don’t they understand that they scare us? Really I’m saying that in a loving and joking way – I know first hand how hard it is to watch a little one not feel well in a hospital and I can’t be more happier for all of you. I’ve been checking your blog at least 3 times a day hoping for this great news, and here it is! So go and celebrate and give huge hugs to everyone, including yourself from all of us in Maine. We’ve thinking of you every day! {{{HUGS}}} Cheryl
