Well, Liam is back in the room with us! Finally! It took a little longer than expected, but he is making steady progress. He's been eating by bottle during the day for the past few days and has been eating over night via the tube. We don't want to jinx it, but he hasn't been puking at all for the past few days! We hope upon hope that he'll keep this trend up. It means he's keeping all the calories in and gaining weight.
His pacemaker took a little while to settle out and the docs made a few adjustments to its programming to get it working right, but things look good so far. After the surgery he struggled with his breathing some, too, but now he's breathing on his own (with the help of a nasal cannula) and they're working on taking the flow of the oxygen down a bit.
He's still in a bit of pain from the surgery, so he's taking a few meds for that, but he's mostly happy now. Mommy went to Aunt Kimmie's surprise birthday party and when she came back, Liam was so happy that he couldn't stop smiling at her. Uncle Matt, Aunt Katy and Cousin Sam gave Liam some get well balloons and they are his new favorite pastime! Unlike his father and his unnatural balloon-phobia, Liam loves him some balloon. He goes to sleep staring at them, no doubt waiting for another balloon-filled day in the morning.
Love to all,
