I haven't even had time to upload the pictures on the camera from Christmas to show everyone. But need to update that Jack is back in the hospital. Two days ago he started coughing...something Evie has been doing for awhile. Last night Jack ran a temperature of 102 and his oxygen dropped to 81%. Brian and I packed a bag for the ER, but talked to the cardiologist on call and we decided to wait until the morning (who wants to go to the ER at night...on a holiday weekend). So after a very restless night for everyone, Jack got up around 8. When I checked his oxygen it was down to 77%. I made another call to the cardiologist on call, who told us to come to Children's Hospital ER. And here we still are, except in a room under observation. They do not know why his O2 is so low. It took all day, one negative flu test, and an X-ray that showed a little fluid on his lungs (probably still from surgery but nothing significant) for his O2 to be 90% on a nasal cannula. Tomorrow they are going to test him for several respiratory viruses and possible an echo. I am hoping and praying that they figure out what is going on and that we get to go home tomorrow!! I am so very sick of hospitals!! I know Jack is too. I hate seeing him so miserable!!
