|Matt Matt & Mimi find the play room|
Finally this evening Dr. Breitbart said we are pulling the tubes in the morning! That collective sigh of relief you heard this evening was from an east wing at Boston Children's Hospital. This feels like a champagne toasting event. We won't be drinking of course, but one of you guys enjoy a Mimosa in the morning and raise a toast in Matthew's direction. I wish I could convey to him how much better he will feel immediately after, but I guess we'll settle for counting down the hours and consoling him in the meantime.
So what does this mean for the the rest of his stay? Well we are definitely not coming home Wednesday as originally planned. However, after the tubes are out, Matthew will stay two more days and then have a chest x-ray. If all looks good (no air or fluid pockets visible) then he'll be discharged. So Thursday at the very earliest.
It will be early afternoon before we can probably update again tomorrow but we'll post as soon as we can. Thanks again for all the prayers and love. They are felt and appreciated so very much.
