Up on the floor!!

The next big milestone has been reached...we are out of the ICU!! What a relief! I really was getting frustrated with all the false alarms we were having...but it all worked out right.

I almost thought today would be another false alarm. Right after the doctors told us we would go to the floor, Joshua decided to have another small irregular heart rhythm. I was sure we would be staying another night. However, they checked the EKGs and double checked his electrolytes (after some serious digging with a needle...I swear this kid is not going to have any veins left after this...) and everything looked good. Thy are going to evaluate his medications for his heart rhythms one more time, just to make sure he is getting the proper dose.

We are very excited to be on the floor, but I did get one bit of bad news. The unit just started their "flu season" policy of no visitors under that age of 2...which means no Logan hangin' out with us in the room. This was a blow to me, since I was excited to have Logan more involved and I wouldn't feel so divided between my boys. I'm still hoping I can figure out a way, but we will do what we have to do. In the mean time, we are very grateful for the progress Joshua has made and for reaching this big milestone!!
