Yesterday while visiting our beloved ICU, Nurse Kelly was telling the Docs that Eddie had "climbed right up in that chair." I realized I don't think of such things as milestones anymore given that Eddie is able to do more every day. I am getting to the point where I don't have to spot his every move, worrying he'll fall or not be strong enough to do things alone. We're down to one page of meds, and Eddie kept his weight steady from his last clinic visit 2 weeks ago to yesterday. I hope he is always glad, but in a way I look forward to the day when he doesn't look at me and say, "I'm glad to be at home, not at the hospital." He still says that all on his own, every day. Today he asked to see his "pump in the cabinet." He likes to hold up his empty Berlin heart to his belly and match everything up.
We love to visit Children's and see beloved friends, but we regret there are many who we haven't been able to hug or keep in touch with since Eddie left the hospital. We'll find a way of tracking you down! (or you could get in touch with us :-) We don't want to lose you...you're part of our team.
