Wow. . .

I stepped out to go to the cafeteria while he napped and his nurse left for her break right afterward (someone covered for her, obviously). Apparently, while we were gone, the tech came in to do his ECG or EKG, I can't remember which, and he didn't even fuss! He's such a good boy. Dr. Bromberg will look at it tonight but he mainly wanted it to have a history so that the next time this happens we have something to compare it to. By the time I got back up to the room he was back asleep! Amazing child, he is. What this really means is that he's getting too used to being bothered. You know, desensitized! Like watching too much violence on tv or something, only it's having too many procedures in a hospital setting. Sad, really.

I have to say thank you to everyone who has been praying for Connie, calling, emailing, posting messages on his blog, or even just reading the updates. We've got old friends and new coming out of the woodwork offering whatever they can. . .ideas on getting him to eat from his old dietician and OT, babysitting for Mary Kathleen, letting out the dog, arranging subs for me at school, etc. I especially want to thank Lisa, a fellow heart mom, for coming up the past two days to chat and for the special goodies she brought Connie. She has a little boy six months younger than Connie with the same heart condition.

That all sounds good, yes? And you'll be going home soon?
I'm feeling cautiously optimistic with this update. I'll be tuned in for more, especially for Tuesday's cardioversion.
