Out of ICU

Eon is doing great! He's been moved from ICU to the heart floor and there is talk that he could go home as early as Monday! He started the day looking miserable. I got here to relieve Shawn around 7:30 and he just looked pitiful. I asked Shawn if he'd been fussy and he said, "Only when he was awake." But, as the day progressed, they removed his chest tube, foley cath, and arterial line and he is starting to show us some smiles. Mostly he just eyes everyone suspiciously. His milk intake is good and he's tolerating it well, too. I finally got to hold him as we brought him to the 4th floor and that's the first time he really smiled, as well.

Praying for a good night, no infections, good pain control, and sleep for both of us.


  1. This is such good news! What a little fighter!!! Prayers continue!

  2. We will be praying for it all!
