Today was quite a big day. We have finally moved out of the ICU. Since Noah is on a trach and now finally off all narcotics, they moved us up to the 3rd floor. We feel good about this progress as the dr's here are used to dealing with more critical care (long-term) patients. The ICU staff didn't really know what to do with us since their patients typically only stay about 3 or 4 days.
His new attending dr's will be pulmonary, so we're hoping they will able to evaluate his respiratory status more thoroughly and give us a care plan. I guess we're one step close to getting our little guy home.
Even though there has been a lot of change, which is always a bit tough, we can use our cell phones in the room, eat in the room, not have to deal with shift change (room location) - what simple pleasures.
The new phone number for the 3rd floor is 303-861-6516. Please feel free to call us here.
It is humbling to know that you are all praying for Noah - all I can say is thank you for holding up my son, my wife, my daughter, my family.
