UPDATE (8/23/13)

Please excuse my brief update. I usually try to provide details that are both informative and engaging….but today I am feeling a little drained. Not because we had a bad day or anything, but more-so the fact that it’s been a long 8 months (almost), and these updates can sometimes be challenging to compose.

Beckett has had a much better day once again today. We hardly had to give him any meds to settle him; maybe a lil Advil and/or Tylenol. Though he definitely had his moments where he got tired and grumpy, it was nothing a lil orajel and/or a wagon ride couldn’t fix. Thankfully Leah was able to actually hold him today and console him that way (in which I heard her whisper while holding him, “I missed this”. That usually hasn’t been working because of the sensitivity of the newly placed j-tube in his belly. She had to be careful, but he certainly seemed to like it (once again).

Two more things:
1) We are possibly on track to being discharged on Monday…which would be awesome!
2) But, they did find some very unique and potentially very undesired heart rhythms today in the telemetry room that could either be signs of a “bad thing” or signs of an “insignificant thing”. Clearly we are hoping and praying for the “insignificant thing”….but we are now waiting to hear back on the overall consensus from the team. Hopefully we’ll know more by tomorrow.

That’s about it. Love you guys! Goodnight!

    Short updates are just as good as long ones, they still get the message across. Praying for rest, energy and home on Monday!!

  2. Praying the heart rhythms they found today are insignificant things as you said. Keep hanging in there and we’ll keep praying you through.

    Hope all turns out to be insignificant on the heart irregularities! Each one of us are just different from everyone else! Maybe he has a better beat than the rest of us! Fingers crossed on Monday!!! I am just glad he is headed in the right direction(as far as the big picture goes!) I love reading about him every morning. It puts my day in perspective as I head out to do ultrasounds on my pregnant mommies to rule out heart defects on their lol ones. Have blessed day!
