Moving Day! (cross-post)

Today we finally get transferred to Shriner's. I'm not sure exactly when that's going to happen but hopefully no later than early afternoon. Ben will be transferred by ambulance. I thought he would be excited about that, but apparently not. Let's hope that he warms to the idea soon!

The last couple of days have been mainly good with a bit of a hiccup last evening. Ben's catheter was removed yesterday morning and with that they want him to pee within 8 hours. Well, he hadn't peed after 12 hours and another catheter was threatened. Well. After much ado (including more vomit which went all over teddy and blankie), he finally peed!!

Otherwise, things have been very smooth lately. All the tubes and wires are gone and he's content to watch videos or play games on the iPad. He's not even on Tylenol anymore!

He did finally get to sit up in a wheelchair yesterday afternoon, but he wasn't too thrilled about it as it wasn't HIS wheelchair.

I had hoped to post more pictures off my real camera in this post but just realized that I'm missing a cord to hook it up to my iPad. Hopefully I'll find time to post more photos this afternoon.

I want to thank every one of you that sent us comments and emails over the last week. I wish I could respond to all of you personally but with over 100 people following along on the blog and many others on Facebook, I just can't. Please know that we read each and every one of them. Usually more than once. They have been a huge part of what kept us going.

  2. I hope the moves go smoothly. I can't believe that he doesn't think it's going to be cool to ride in an ambulance. I thought all kids thought they were cool. Maybe he'll change his mind once he is in there.

    Good luck as you start the next leg of this journey.
