Back Roaming the Halls

Jadon has continued to progress very well since the last setback 1 1/2 weeks ago.  He is now off all of his blood pressure medications and off the main sedative he has been on.  They have switched his pain medication to something that can eventually be taken orally and so he could get out of the CCCU.  The last two swabs of his sternal wound have come back negative for the fungal culture.  Maybe the infection is gone and we can focus completely on the healing!

Along with this, Jadon has made strides in other ways.  He has taken small amounts of an apple sauce/juice combo orally... the first food he's taken in about 4 weeks!  This is important as he doesn't tolerate feedings through his NG tube very well and so is currently dependent on IV feedings.  He has also been going for walks in his special stroller, accompanied by his IV pole!  Today he took two walks outside and enjoyed the feeling of sun on his face for the first time in 6 weeks!
So great to see his smile again!
Jadon's nurse today is an avid flower lover... and 'picked' a few for Jadon on our walk this morning!
