Saturday morning update

Joshua is feeling so much better this morning.  They came by this morning and pulled out all the pacer wires and chest tubes.  Joshua wasn't thrilled by the pulling, but he was brave and only had a few tears. After fighting Joshua every time he had to take medication orally I finally remembered that we used to put his Lasix in root beer. We did that this morning and he took his pain medicine great. It was great to not fight him over it.  Dr. Burch says we are on the launch pad to head home in a few days.  We are still working at getting the fluid out of Joshua's lungs. He is more cooperative today. 

We brought surprises for when he had to do hard things. He is finally showing interest in opening them. Yesterday he got a Go Fish and a War game. He has liked playing them.  It is good to see him show some interest in things besides movies.

Here he is playing cards.  Love this little guy!!!

To all you wonderful Waites still at home...we love you and can't wait to see you again!! Thanks for everything you are doing to let us be here with Joshua. You are each amazing!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!
