A Word of Thanks…

I wanted to post the thank you from my nephew and his family for all of you who may not be able to access his care page.  Thanks again from all of us.

Our trip home was fair. Of course we were dead tired so we struggled to stay awake. Grayson did well. He slept a lot of the way. He was very irritable last night. I think he is just nerved out bigtime from all of this. He was very hard to deal with. He didn’t want to go to bed and when he did it took him a while to actually get into a good sleep. But once he did he slept fairly well. He woke up a couple of times but went back to sleep. His daddy slept on the floor in his room. He was still wheezing pretty badly last night. Today he has sounded better. We went to the pediatrician this morning and she says he does not have any type of infection. She said his problem is from being intubated. She gave him a breathing treatment and a dose of decadron (spell??). She said to let him sleep with a cool mist humidifier until the irritation clears up. So now all we need to do is get Grayson back to feeling comfortable about his surroundings. He is on “high alert” like he is just waiting for the next thing to be done to him. It has been very stressful for him. For us too!!I can’t say enough how thankful we are for the prayers and the words of encouragement and support. Our words would never be adequate enough to express the gratefullness in our hearts to everyone.
