Out of PICU

Well, Ryan is 18 months old today. He was moved from the PICU to a regular peds. bed. He would not have been moved today, but he was doing well enough and a sicker kid needed his room. Ryan continues to go through withdrawls- spacey and shakey. He is getting better- it is just a slow process. He started drinking better today- makes us very happy to see. He is very weak and will start PT and OT tomorrow. He can hold his head up on his own, but needs lots of support to sit up. He tries to grab onto things, but isn't able to pick them up. Still not sure how long he will need to be in the hospital. He also has a very hard time falling alseep- part of the withdrawls. So, I layed him down and hopefully when I get back to his room from writing this he will be sleeping. RJ and I are starting to get a little testy with each other, but realize we are doing it and try to take it easy on each other. RJ is taking a nap with Ryan, so hopefully he won't be so crabby. That's all I know for now. I hope everyone else is doing well.
