Handsome boy after spongebath and "hairwash"

The wonderful Dr. Hanley posing with cutest patient
I am currently writing to you from the third floor. How awesome is that?!
We moved this morning BEFORE lunch time. On the way out we saw Dr. Hanley. I asked him to swing by for a picture and he said he was just on his way to see us! He came by after we moved rooms and we snapped this picture:
Before we moved they took out his arterial line in his femoral artery and the IJ (which I think means, intrajugular line).
This is Grandma (Andrea's mom) taking over the post for now. Andrea had to leave for a well deserved and therapeutic back massage. Dan is hopefully napping with Ava or at the very least getting a shower. Their good friend, Bekah, and I are keeping an eye on Drew. She had to really twist my arm, of course. He is resting very peacefully after moving to the third floor, having endured a very long day of having physical therapy, sitting up and standing up for the first time, getting a sponge bath, having his hair washed and sitting on the potty with positive results. Just as he was through with all of that and looking like a clean, handsome little man, the respiratory therapist came in to pound on his chest. He completely ignored her and continued to watch Dumbo while she did it, but showed his independence by refusing to flow bubbles for her. We'll work on that later. He was a trooper through it all but is so happy to just be left alone. My job was to make sure he took plenty of fluids and he is obliging by sipping on his drink of choice, chocolate milk. I'm sure Andrea and/or Dan will fill in more details later, but I will post some pictures from our very eventful day. As a side note though, we were very encouraged last night when Andrea's cousins, Heather and John came to visit and read Drew "Where the Wild Things Are" he actually was interested in hearing the story and pointed at the picture and said, "Max!" Encouraging, because mostly he likes to ignore us as much as possible, but his sweet little personality is breaking thorugh!
