Moving on up

I woke up this morning knowing that it was going to be a very serial day, but actually it turned out to be a very nice,PICU this afternoon peaceful day.

Xander was moved out of the PICU this afternoon. We were told that we caught his NEC as it was starting and that it seems that the antibiotics that they have him on are doing the job they need it to do. HUGE RELIEF.

Although we are now upstairs we may still be there a few more days and even weeks it all depends to be honest. right now the plan is to keep all feeds away for a few days, place a PICC line and then give back feeds little by little just to see how his intestines will handle it.

Once everything looks the way they want it to and need it to we will be able to go home once more. i am so happy to hear them tell me that there will be no need for surgery since all the X-rays  they have done in the last 24 hours are showing that the meds indeed are doing what they hoped they would.

Xander once again is showing how much of a fighter he is and will be for the rest of his life. I keep telling myself as things happen each time that it is up to him not me he is the one that has the fight with in him and will do what he feels is right.
