ugh...I knew this day was going to be hard. I'll be discharged after lunch and even though I will go up to spend some time with Jackson before I leave, I just don't want to leave him!! I'll be back first thing in the morning, but it's just not the same. On the other hand, I really miss the other kids so I know it will be important to be home for them.
The good thing is that they were able to wean Jackson down from 45% oxygen to 29% overnight. Room air is 21% so he doesn't have much further to go before he could maybe be weaned off the oxygen hood. And his respirations look a little better. I'm really hopeful that maybe over the next couple days he can be weaned off all of the support and then just take a couple of days to be monitored off of all the support and learn to feed and everything (because right now he's only getting nutrition via IV). I know that there can be setbacks, but I am just REALLY hoping that we are on the right road and maybe my little one can come home at the end of this week and not next. Keeping my fingers double crossed : )
