We didn't make a lot of progress medically, but we did make some good improvements in attitude today. Drew got to visit the playroom for the first time today, and he played for about an hour. He played with the rice table, some hotwheels and he played Candy Land with two little girls. Then we went to visit the train for a few minutes before returning to his room.
We spotted a few spontaneous smiles today, a few at the playroom and a few while watching some favorite movies. The nurse even saw one and exclaimed "there's a smile!" To which he replied, "NO!" We are still hearing quite a bit of that word and a new heart-wrenching phrase he picked up, "you're hurting me." He was up a lot more today and really enjoyed playing with the dinosaurs that Baby Isaac sent all the way from Las Vegas. Thanks Rollers!
Drew was down to .15 liters of oxygen, which is such a tiny amount that we convinced the nurse to turn it off. So far he's holding steady around 95%, which is amazing! Hopefully we can get rid of the oxygen altogether. The pulse ox leaves burns on his fingers and toes so we've been moving the sensor every day. He's still been getting burns so we're trying to move it around even more, but if he doesn't need the O2 anymore, he doesn't have to be on that monitor all the time.
Have a good night and we'll see you all in the morning!
