Baths and Smiles

The most significant thing that happened yesterday, was that Mr. Kimble got another bath.  We just hung out together.  In the next picture, you can see his three chest tube sites that still have sutures, some bruising, and you can see his chest scar, where they opened his chest.  It is covered with a thin tape layer.  Once the skin underneath is healed enough, the tape layer peels away on its own.  The bottom part has already started pulling away.  He isn't bothered by it at all, except that it itches him.
We are waiting for X-ray and for ultrasound.  Once those two things are finished, the results will tell us whether we can go home today!

Showed the kids the blog posts of kimble. They are so happy.

Kolby was very happy and I could tell that he was relieved. He is smiling now and interacting with the rest of us more than he was. The last picture of you and Kimble with his big smile, put a big smile on Kolbys face, I love it!

Happy to hear that Kimble is doing so well. This may be funny to say, but he looks like such a healthy and happy baby - it's strange to see these pictures in hospital setting. What a strong boy! Even as a stranger visiting via blog-land, I can tell the diuretics have made a world of difference. Joy, joy!

Hooray! Love to see that smile. Keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well with Xray and Ultrasound so you can go home.

Hugs...........
