Turns out our boy was just a little blood thirsty. The day after his transfusion he was much pinker, less irritable, and much better on the respiratory front (he passed his 90 min car seat test without needing any intervention which many were skeptical if he could do). Yesterday, I got him to give several good sucks on my finger and we did his PT exercises without too much of a fight. He also stopped doing those weird episodes they thought might be seizures. All in all, he just seems like a much happier camper.

So, we finally got to room in last night. Besides the hospital monitors going off all night because the sensor was bad, it was a pretty good experience. And Peter has been great all day as we are just waiting to get discharged. I think there is a lot to be said about being in a quiet room without monitors blaring every 2 seconds and doctors wanting to examine him. He just seems a lot more peaceful. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come and he will continue to thrive once we have him home. Will update everyone once we hopefully get him out the door!!
