Elton John, Philadelphia Freedom
Does the song say it all?! We're free!!!!
Late yesterday afternoon, we finally got the results we'd been waiting for, and it was happy news!! Jay's INR was 2.58 - which is not only above the 2.0 they were looking for but in the range we've been aiming toward all along!! Hallelujah! Have I used enough exclamation points yet?!?! I don't care!! We're free!!!
From then it was a complete whirlwind of getting prescriptions ordered at a compounding pharmacy in Raleigh, getting enough meds to tide him over for the next few days, discharge instructions, frantic packing of the stuff we'd accumulated, and saying goodbyes to some amazing folks we met there. I was not prepared for how emotional those goodbyes would be. I shed a few tears with some of our favorite ICU nurses, including the charge nurse who performed CPR. We are so amazingly blessed to be bringing home a healthy kid.
We're at the Ronald McDonald House now, and we're bound for good ol' NC tomorrow. We will share pictures and details soon - but in the meantime we've got to take a picture of Jay slaying the Drexel Dragon that he's been begging to see...
