Well we were finally released from the Pediatric ICU and returned to Sloan. I never thought I would be excited to return to a children’s cancer floor. The death and depression in the ICU were just overwhelming for me (at least two children passed away in the ICU while we were there, not a fun experience). I know the doctors in the ICU save more patients than they lose, but I couldn’t deal with the losses. Much respect.
On a more uplifting topic, after we left our PICU room pictured above, we checked into our nice big room in the step-down unit at Sloan. Jackson still has most of his tubes in but he is doing much better and finally off of breathing apparatuses.
Counting our blessings each day. I love you little man!
