A Is Back!

So it has been a few days since I have posted, but I am happy to say that A if fine now and back to his old smiley self! Actually maybe even a bit happier than his old self!

Thursday went okay, he was still a bit fussy off and on but it was definitely better than Wednesday or the rest of the week. He actually slept all night on Thursday which was a bonus because it is VERY unusual for him to do this. Of course his sleep was interrupted early as I had to wake him up at 6am to get him ready to head to Toronto Sick Kids for 9:15am. Grandma and grandpa were here to pick us up at 7am and it took two hours to get there! I cannot stand the early appointments because we get stuck in the traffic all of the time and it is just insane!

So the appointment was for his pre-op for his MRI and CT scan. He will be put under a general for this and they decided that they want him to stay overnight after he gets it done. I am a bit frustrated with this because he has had a general before and just had to wait a couple of hours before leaving. I think with his history and cyanotic episodes that he has on a daily basis they are just being safe.

When they hooked him up to the sat monitor, he was only at 87. The nurse waited and waited and he pretty much stayed around there. She said that he can’t do that all the time and I said yes he does. She asked if the docs are investigating it and I said no with a little laugh. After a bit he came up to 95 so she used that number for the form. I would say that his average sat is 92.

Anyhow, he was in a great mood the whole entire day at sick kids! When we left he fell asleep in the truck and we drove around a bit so my parents could reminisce about the past since they grew up in Toronto. We drove by my grandparents old house, wow that was strange! Haven’t been there in almost twenty years. We then went for lunch at Swiss Chalet before heading home.

Last night after daddy got home we went and bought bikes! Now we just need to find a bike trailer for A. I actually found a place that builds them and they are right here in Guelph. I think I will take A in one day this week and see how I like them. The one at Sport Check he sat in fine, but this other place builds them for special needs. And I think once he gets bigger he will need the extra support for his head/neck/trunk.

Today was a good day as well with A…..I need to get to bed though as my eyes are trying not to close! Oh, and I don’t know who left the comment the other day about A’s soother being in upside down but that is the way that he likes it. I know how it really goes but he cannot hold it in by himself that way. I think with his bottom lip over the top edge it helps him. Oh well, your comment gave me a laugh! 🙂
