Toronto Day 31
An ok day...other than the continued respiratory stuff (oxygen, ventolin and secretions). Physio got Noah out of bed this morning for a while, and he did manage to play a bit, but got frustrated, wheezy and tuckered out very quickly. Definately not his usual self yet, but we are getting there. We got rid of the morphine infusion this afternoon...Noah was a bit jittery with some withdrawal, but has done well with just tylenol.
Feeds are still at 2 mls as Noah has already started his usual dumping (the feeds seem to just go right through him), and a bit of retching as well. We have started Loperamide (Imodium) to see if this will help slow down his gut a bit.
The kids and I checked out the hospital theatre this afternoon...yep, this place even has a movie theatre. We saw "Imagine That"...cute movie which we all enjoyed. Tomorrow we may try to do a bit of sightseeing.
Had to take a picture of Noah's roadmap posted by his bed. Thought it was rather cute...the nurse's way of keeping track of all his tubes...
