More Of A Lateral Move.....

...but a step closer to home!

We are out of the PICU and on a "clean" floor, meaning no kids with RSV or the like are allowed on this floor. It is a step-down unit on the other side of the PICU. Nolan made a great first impression by pulling out his own IV in his wrist. Guess it was time for it to go! There is one more in his foot and the drain in his incision, but that is it.

Aunty Kathy, Uncle John, and Aunt Jan happened by at just the right time and were a big help in getting Nolan and Mommy moved. Daddy and Grammy showed up, and Nolan reached out and latched onto daddy as soon as he heard his voice. He also started a little chuckling and giggling, which means normality continues to creep back.

I'm going back home to stay with Reagan, as daddy stays with our little guy tonight.
