Hospital Update #2
I don't know who was happier when I arrived at the hospital today: William or me. Okay, it was definitely me, but he was pretty happy, too.
Although he has made great improvements from when he first arrived, he is still pretty weak. When he sits up, his body kind of sways like he's just too weak to have any stability. His eyes are droopy, but he managed a weak smile and a perky, "Hi," when I walked in.
His oxygen levels dropped and stayed at 87 for awhile, so they've been giving him oxygen for the last 3 1/2 hours. He's still not back up in the 90s, so they're keeping the oxygen going.
Everyone at the hospital has been so very sweet and attentive. It is comforting to have him at a hospital that specializes in children. We are confident that he is receiving the best care possible and that is a tremendous relief!
Sarah is taking lots of pictures and William is staying busy with all of his new toys. The volunteers at the hospital have brought him 2 toys each day he's been there. He really likes his new "Woody" doll (you can see him cuddling with it in the 2nd picture below)!
The difference of a day:
Drawing blood is "old hat" by now:

Necessary evil: suctioning
