Well, we have been moved to the floor, and that's always a sign that you are closer to going home, as you don't need as much constant attention. The downside is that you don't get any breaks, as a guardian must be with the child 24-7, so it wears on you just as much as being in the ICU. The ICU stress is more emotional, and the floor stress is more physical.
Braden has made a quick recovery considering he was on life-support nearly three days ago. He has amazed everyone here with his resiliance and fighting spirit. When the doctors and nurses tell you how worried about him they were his first day here - you know that your child was not in a good place, and God has blessed the hands of those who care for him to find solutions that Braden would respond to.
Here is a picture of him in his room on the floor, resting comforably with "Tiggie" at his side as always. You can't see his glow-worm, but she is in the bed with him too - he just loves how the face lights up and it sings to him - he seems fascinated every time.
Thanks for the prayers and support - we appreciate you taking the time to leave notes on the blog for us. It really does lift our spirits to know that so many people out there are pulling for Braden and for all of us.
Kodi, Brad, Braden
