On the way

right out of here! Eli is doing GREAT!! He is off the high flow oxygen and on regular 2 liters. They continue to ween him off his meds. They want to get his drain tube out tomorrow and hopefully oxygen off today! They want to try and get him off the morphine, which he hasn't had since 2am. He is fluid negative and therefore his potassium and magnesium was low, they gave him riders for that and will retest in about an hour. He continues to eat like a champ and has not had a single feeding through the ng tube! Woo hoo. He is also gaining weight...and because we know he is fluid negative, we know its good weight gain and not just extra fluid.

The NP said that we should anticipate going home wed. or Thursday this week! That makes us super excited.
