Well, this is going to be a very brief update since I'm typing with my thumbs! The thrill of sleeping in my own bed last night was so overwhelming that I forgot to bring my laptop to the hospital. For those counting, that was nine consecutive nights sleeping in the ICU penthouse suite . . . will definitely post some pictures soon.
Eddie is definitely sad to be back on ECMO since it limits his movement and he requires more sedation. That said, I left him just a few minutes ago and he was resting peacefully. The nurses really did a great job cleaning him up earlier today and he looks so handsome considering the circumstances.
We've had a slight hiccup this evening since he tested positive for rhinovirus so is now in isolation. Basically means the nurses have to wear gowns, masks, and gloves and his door needs to remain closed. The virus certainly isn't dangerous, but it could impact his eligibility for a transplant if left untreated. He has no symptoms and is not outwardly sick, but the cultures came back positive so we have to take precautions.
Otherwise, it was a quiet day around here. Had a couple nice visits and were blessed with a few Trophy cupcakes from our guardian angels (you know who you are!)
Promise to share a more comprehensive update tomorrow once I can type with all eight fingers and two thumbs :-)
