So its official.... Yale is no longer in hospital :) YAY!
After an annoying round of antibiotics we finally got the okay to leave for good :)
I say "for good" because for Yale's birthday yesterday he got to have an overnight pass with me! It was great. I was a little apprehensive at first. I mean its been over three months since I took care of Yale overnight...and here they were just sending us off for the day with not a care in the world. Turns out the apprehension was for nothing. We had a blast and for the first time we co slept. I'd never done it before because of Yale's health issues and for fear of smothering him... but wow did we both sleep well!
Dr dipchand today during rounds said that she didn't mind if after clinic this week, if we didn't mind weekly trips to toronto, that we were clear to go home.... AH... I can't believe I'm going home... and Yale is coming and he's healthy. I mean I always knew the day would come... but now that its here its kind of a shock. So the only thing holding us back is a couple of weeks that have echos scheduled for mondays and clinics are thursday... and well I might just make a few phonecalls and get those switched around! :) So there you have it folks. Yale is well enough to go home. he's on two meds twice a day. Only his immunosupressants. oh and an antibiotic three times a week... He's eating and doesn't require any assistance with that...only on mildly thickened fluids until he can be reassessed about his vocal chords and aspiration risk.
Alas...I must go now...Yale is with me and his patience for my update has run out...:) I LOVE IT!
