We had a pretty good first night at home! I think Fitz was happy to be in his own bed last night. We added a couple more books under Fitz's bed, so it would be jacked up even higher than it was before, because Dr. Grant said if the bed is elevated, it helps him breathe easier and it helps the swelling go down. His face looks much less swollen this morning. He's sleeping or I would post some pics...I'm sure we'll have some later to post.
I got up twice during the night because I could hear Fitz making noises on the monitor, and when I looked at it, he was rubbing his face. That may not sound so unusual, but he had arm splints on to prevent him from doing just that! The first time, he had worked the splint down a little so he could bend his arm. I had to put it back on and that woke him up a little, so I had to get him back to sleep. He went back to sleep pretty quickly. A couple of hours later, I heard him again, and when I looked, he was rubbing his face again! When I got to his room, he had the splint completely OFF, with the velcro straps open! It was laying under his other arm. I'm not sure how our little Houdini managed to, not only get the splint off, but get it under his other arm! He went back to sleep pretty fast that time, too, and then woke up at his normal time, around 5:15 a.m.
He drank 4.5 oz this morning, and it took him less time than yesterday, so I think he's getting used to his new lips and how to drink with them. I'm going to try to get him back on his usual schedule today...we'll see how that goes! I'll update more later, with pictures!
