|Cruising around the hospital with Nurse Erinn for his car seat challenge. He passed. :)|

Davis is officially out! We were discharged around noon today and couldn't be any happier about being out of the hospital and on our way home. The docs all said he's looking great and they're very happy with how the surgery has turned out. The only real activity for Davis in the hospital before we could leave was one vaccine and the infamous car seat challenge (just to make sure he's getting enough oxygen when sitting in his car seat) So now we're on our own and Davis has 6-8 weeks of recovery ahead before he'll be fully back to normal. The only bad news of the day was that Davis has an ear infection. He had been grabbing at his left ear for a few days but everything looked ok inside...till today when they said it's red and inflamed. So they gave him a dose of antibiotics and we filled the prescription to keep it going for 10 days. Not a big deal in the scheme of things, but it is his first ear infection and he seems very uncomfortable and irritable. He also didn't sleep much last night (probably due to his ear too), and he's still gassy, so it's a trifecta of problems that are making him upset. So Kelly and I have been taking turns walking him through the hotel halls and taking him to look at the pool (which is huge, has a waterslide, and is fully of activity). We're hoping he gives in and goes to sleep soon so he'll feel better in the morning. Tomorrow we have the whole day free, so we'll pack, venture out to mail a box home and then grab some dinner somewhere. Friday we catch our flight back to Colorado and we are SUPER excited to get back. It's been a long adventure...although it really does feel like it's gone by quickly. The Ronald McDonald house is moving families back in on Friday, but that's the day we fly out. So we're riding out the rest of our time in Rochester here at the Ramada. Hopefully tomorrow goes by as quickly as our time in the hospital and we'll be on our way home soon.
