Noah is so much better than he was - so much so, that we have been upgraded to a room across the hall which is MUCH bigger and brighter and not hot! It's so nice to be able to look out the windows. They like to keep the room where you can see through to the nurses desk for kids that are very sick, so it's a good sign when you get to move out of there. It's nice to have some space so we can all be in the room at the same time, and not be sitting on top of each other.
He is now down to 5 litres of oxygen, up to normal feeds and the canula is out (thanks to it tissuing), so today they will decide whether they will put in another canula, but I think they will leave it out and just keep him on oral meds from now on.
I'm sure we are in for at least a couple more days, but things are so much better....for Noah at least. I'm feeling really awful with bronchitis and am coughing up so much junk from my lungs, that I even gave myself some ventolin last night and had a hyper-saline neb to try to loosen things up! Kobe couldn't work out what was going on and kept pointing to me having a neb and telling the boys saying 'Mum!!'. I think it scared him a bit as he's only used to seeing Noah with it on.
Aaron is going to have the day off work tomorrow as carer's leave as I'm not really well enough to deal with everything going on at the moment on my own (plus dealing with last minute house stuff while all this is going on), so it will be nice to have the two boys at school tomorrow and have things around here a bit more peaceful (and restful!).
