Chest Tubes Pulled!

The doctors just pulled BOTH chest tubes! They are gone and I am going home tomorrow!

I was just feeling a bit sad for my beloved Captain Adorable (who has been having some regression--peeing in his pants) and wondering how to help him, when the doctor (the fellow) came in to pull a chest tube. He told me that the big boss was here too, and soon enough Dr. Surgeon came in to supervise the removal. I was still upset and Dr. Surgeon asked me if I was worried about something at home and I said yes, my little boy was missing me and he responded, "You can tell him you'll be home tomorrow."

SO HAPPY!

Yay! Glad you are going home to him. My 4 year old regressed from me working part time. We are totally in diapers with no end in sight. If its not one thing its another.

Don't worry about the peeing, it will settle down again. My niece's youngest started wetting herself after the family broke up - she missed her dad. She was 3. then her sister of -5 started doing the same thing. Most people say the elder one wanted the extra attention but I had the idea she was doing it in solidarity with her little sister as mum used to get so shouty... I guess we will never know the answer. Anyway, don't worry about it. It will stop before he gets married ;-)
