Leo has made the big move to "The Floor" as they call it. He is now on the third floor in the Childrens Surgical Unit and has left the CICU (Cardiac Intensive Care Unit) meaning he is not a critical heart patient anymore. This is great news and also an adjustment to go from a nurse with him 24 hours a day to a regular room with a nurse who has other patients.
He is not on any oxygen right now and hopefully won't have to come home with any. However he did not pass his swallow study meaning he is not ready to take food by mouth and will keep his feeding tube in for now.
Big news is we should be coming home at the end of the week! This is much sooner than we expected. If he was taking food by mouth we would be here a little longer while he figured that out. But overall he is doing awesome and definitely fits into the best case scenario for his heart defect and what his poor little body has been through.
I can see home in our future. I am both thrilled and terrified.
