Good bye PICU


beep, beep


As soon as I went to take this picture the large doors, way back there opened. In walked the doctor. The doctor that we thank every time we see. The doctor who reviewed her medical records for us when she was in China. The doctor who told us her heart could be repaired.
The doctor who calls her Boo. The doctor who tells me "she is why I do this job" The doctor we adore. Jadyn's cardiologist!

Our girl made huge progress today.
She got her last chest tube removed and we were moved to a semi-private room. A big room, with a couch!

Her cardiologist told her if she continues to do this well, she can go home on Saturday.
Mommy is ready, this is our 9th day here and I miss home.

Jadyn is feeling so good today, as I type this she is laying in bed eating some baked potato chips with Auntie. She hasn't needed any Tylenol today and seems to have no pain.

We took Jadyn for a walk in the hallway, she made it pretty far before asking to be picked up.
It is amazing how fast little kids bounce back after a major surgery.
She is her happy, silly self today.

I can imagine how ready you were to go home. 9 days is rough in the hospital. I am usually off the wall after 1. Jadyn looks so good. Will this be the last surgery she needs? We are sending her hugs and kisses.

hugs,
Jonni
