Day 35

It's me, Kristen, posting...

Words from Jill:

Crazy...35 days in the hospital. I was going to update the blog last night, but Matthew was up coughing....and awake...all night! I did not get any sleep. So the blog has waited till today. Matthew's awake episode was caused mainly from coughing. He has so much junk in his lungs to cough up that it keeps him awake. So today we're going to work on coughing and getting rid of it. As soon as I would lay him down, he would cough till he vomited. LONG NIGHT.

Today Dr. D saw Matthew and said it was a world of difference from the last time he saw him. Our goal for today is to increase his feeding time during the day and give his tummy a rest at night. And the other thing we talked about...dismissal!! We are coming home! Thursday is the day. He thinks he'd be ready Wednesday, but since we have to buy a plane ticket, He wants another day just in case something happens. I can't wait to be home!!! Soon we are going home!

Matthew is coughing again, sorry this will have to be short and sweet. I will update tomorrow.

Oh I am so happy to hear that you will be able to take your sweet boy home soon!!! Hooray! I'll be praying that everything goes even better than planned and you will both be able to be home with your family to enjoy a happy healthy holiday season together!
Sorry about the miserable night - hope last night was better. Coughing til you vomit is no fun.
