Drainage has slowed down!

The drainage in Ethan's chest tube as slowed down! We are headed in the right direction. We are praying to be able to get the chest tube out by Wednesday if it keeps up at this rate. The extra good news is they are going to keep feeding him. The doctors tell me not to say the "H" word (the one that is the other name for house) They say it is a four letter word on the unit and always delays discharge. I thought that was kind of funny. So I won't use that word, but I am hoping we will be there by early next week!

So glad to hear he's improving, and get's to keep being fed. It is so funny how superstitious everyone is at the hospital, you'd think after 8 years we'd be used to it, but nope, I am still always surprised how seriously people take stuff like "We're almost going Rome" (substitute H for R) Thanks for the sweet note in the mail, seriously I would love to help anyway I can. :) Hugs!

Oh I sure do hope it's true that you will get to go home next week. I know for Kyson getting home was the best medicine he ever had! Keep hanging in there, and we'll keep praying for you!

I am so happy to see the drainage is slowing! I want to come see you everyday and everyday the world somehow manages to stop me! Wish I could give you and that cutie pie a big hug!
How do you like little sofia trying to steal a little of Ethan's spotlight! Poor little Skidmore family. Hang in there!
