WE'RE COMING HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that's right, folks, our little man is coming home this afternoon. all the drains, tubes and lines have been pulled (that happened saturday), his blood pressure has started climbing again, but that can be monitored at home, and his reflux is acting up again, but that can also be managed at home. they're typing up the discharge papers now and arranging for post-op follow-up in london for later this week. so, yeah, we're on our way!

asher's sitting with me in the resource centre as i type this - he's been off the monitors since yesterday morning, so he can freely roam the hospital. i'm so proud of him. i never expected him to recover this quickly - or this smoothly! what a HUGE answer to prayer!!!! yay! :)

so, we're on our way home, and some other good news, Yale went home yesterday! happy mother's day, tanna! :) maybe we'll see you in clinic soon! :)

maybe later tonight i'll post a longer update from home, with more details. or maybe i'll just sleep. don't know. but i'll keep you posted. :) h

YAY! Thats super great news! I was hoping you'd get to come home mothers day as well. I meant to come and say goodbye, but your door was closed. :( I was shocked to say the least that Dr B said yes to coming home, and on a sunday to boot! So glad Asher is great.. Really Dr Calderone didn't lie when he said it would be an understatement that he did well... I think Asher has turned a corner, and now recoveries won't be so difficult! He's a champ at it thats for sure!
