Jack had a pretty good, uneventful day today. He didn't want to be held at all, but he finally wanted to play with his duck and puppy a little bit. He's still not eating much but I was able to coax a few ounces down him here and there. They aren't worried enough to want to send him home on a tube or anything and are attributing it to him not feeling well, but I hate seeing my little eater not have any interest in taking a bottle.
The only things I can see that might keep us there until Saturday are if they see something wrong on the echo tomorrow, or if he doesn't start peeing better. He has hardly had any wet diapers today, but that's partly because he's started to clench his lips and spit out his lortab and lasix (the medicine which helps him pee). Little stinker. Hopefully the nurse tonight will do a better job at getting the meds to stay in his mouth than I did.
His poor neck where they took out the jugular line.
The hotel where Hardy and I were staying was sold out last night and tonight so we have been staying at home, and while it is lonely and strange being here without Jack, it sure is nice to have my own shower and a closet full of clean laundry.
