After 43 days, Jadon is finally out of the Cardiac Critical Care! We have met very many wonderful people who have been dedicated in their care of Jadon for one and a half months. He is a sweet little boy and even heavily sedated he seems to have wormed his way into the hearts of many of his caregivers.
This afternoon he was moved up to the step down room on the cardiac floor. This is a transition room between the critical care and a regular ward room.
But of course, things with Jadon are never straightforward. Yesterday and today he had some fevers. His white blood cell count was up. Signs of an infection again! The sternal incision on his chest split open again and there is an infection there. Two types of antibiotics have been started and hopefully this will take care of all that.
They are now working with Jadon to strengthen him and to get him eating and drinking. He is slowly becoming more alert with some signs of our little guy with the big personality that we all love and miss so much!
