EIV was on the bypass machine at approximately 3:30pm on Wednesday afternoon. Off at 4:30pm. Moved to the PICU around 6pm with more tubes and wires than I could count. Sat up around 12am Thursday morning, rolled over around 2:30am and ate at 7am. Moved to the heart floor around 2pm and could have went home by 11am Friday morning. By 4pm, he was crawling and walking behind a toy. When he was released on Saturday morning, he was sent home taking ibuprofen and Tylenol....that's it.
Lesson Learned: Babies are TOUGH, TOUGH, TOUGH! Tougher than any adult I know.
