I cannot say enough wonderful things about the medical staff at Medical City Children's Hospital! Everyone (doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists) took such good care of Drake during our stay! It is never fun to be in a hospital, but if that's where our boy needs to be, we want the staff at Medical City taking care of him. The circumstances were not ideal, but it was good to catch up and visit with the medical staff we know from previous stays. Many of whom we have not seen since Drake had his trach surgery almost two years ago.
On Saturday, Drake was discharged from the PICU. Brian & Kennedy drove in from Tyler to pick us up while Mimi & Poppy brought Hayes to meet us at the hospital. Brian survived a two hour wait in the parking lot with both Kennedy & Hayes! Thank goodness for Disney movies in the car! I truly believe car trips would have gone much smoother in my childhood if we had movies in the car.
Since he is still in the recovery process, Drake will be slowly resuming his therapies. It's going to take a little time, but we will get him back where he was before his hospitalization. Kennedy was able to resume both her dance and gymnastic classes this week, and Hayes still has a cough but his lungs sound clear.
Our family is all home safe and sound under one roof, and everyone is well on their way in the recovery process. 2016 started off rather rocky, but I think it still has plenty of good in store for us!
