We moved to a regular room on the floor around 11:30 am. Caleb had to stay relatively still until 1:30 pm. They ended up going in through an artery in his groin area and in through a vein in his neck area. Because his circulatory system has been re-plumbed, they had to have two access points to see everything they wanted to see. He had a band aid on his neck and a pressure bandage at his groin.
Chilling in Bed
By 1:30, Caleb was doing great and they let us leave the hospital so we could get one more good night's sleep tonight. They left his IV in so he will not have to get another poke tomorrow to put him out (and no more drinking nasty medicine). The IV never really bothered him.
We got back to the hotel and had a snack and played blocks. Then we fell asleep watching cartoons in the chair. We woke up when Phil and the Big Three got here. Caleb slept for another hour, he was wiped out. When he woke up, the Big Three mobbed him. If it weren't because they were so worried about him, it would have been funny. We ordered in Chinese food and hung out.
Eating Snacks at the Hotel
Caleb is pretty whiny, but is doing great. I don't think he will be as friendly tomorrow at the hospital. I can't blame him.
