We think he got a tummy bug so after lots of poop and some extra puking he is doing a little better. He is down to one liter of oxygen which is more than we would like. Have any of you had this many problems after a cath? We were way not prepared for this, we thought it was going to be a simple thing and it turned in to a very big deal. They found that his shunt was pinched a little bit and felt good about fixing it, but he has only done worse. They felt like he was good enough to come home yesterday, but I haven't seen him this bad since they tried to close his chest the first time, so we are a little upset and are waiting for Dr. Day to get back in town to discuss it all.
Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, because life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.
