The doctors came in around 8:00 am and said we were still waiting to hear from Radiology whether or not he needed a drain to remove the excess fluid build up behind Josh's stomach. No food or water until the decision was made. "We should know within an hour..."
FINALLY at 11:15 am, one of Josh's doctors came in and said you are 90% away from getting discharged! No Drain is needed. They are just going to fight the fluid with a high dose of antibiotics and keep an eye on him. If we see ANY symptoms of problems, we need to call the doctor's pager and let her know what's going on.
We have a STACK of prescriptions that are going home with us and our trip will probably take double the time to get home because we need to stop quite often to let Josh walk around. But he is GOING HOME!!!
I can't wait to him home. AND BEFORE THANKSGIVING!
