Carter looked a little better today. His eye is definitely swollen, but he did wake up and look at me long enough to give me that "What did you do to me, and why aren't you cuddling with me?" look and then started freaking out.
They started him on steroids to get rid of the swelling which I asked them to do yesterday, but what do I know? They want to extubate after he's been on the steroids for 24 hours which would mean tomorrow. I sure hope they can because he needs some serious cuddle time!
We snuck a peek at his Echocardiogram results, and from we could tell it looked as though nothing has changed which is GREAT NEWS....but we aren't docs, so there could be something in there that isn't good. I have a call into his Cardiologist, so hopefully we'll find out some info soon.
Here's a comparison of how his eye usually looks when he's sleeping, and how it looks now. It used to be slightly open and now it's completely closed. Success!
Again, thank you for all of the prayers...it warms my heart to know there are so many people who care about our little guy. As you can see, we're not out of the woods yet, but I think we may be on our way.
