I'm back in Vegas at UMC - Alex has a great room in The Burn Unit. I like it because it has a bathroom in it - yea!! I dont have to leave the room anymore :) I miss the nurses at PICU but am already feeling welcomed here - I must say UMC employees only the best!
Alex got his feeding tube out at 8am - that was great to witness. His biggest challenge this am is the heat. He feels hot and is very uncomfortable. Its 68 degrees in here, so its hardly hot and he has ice packs on various parts of his body. His Nurse says they cant turn it down anymore so he is trying to convince the Administration to turn the temperature down to 65. I'll keep you posted on the battle of the heat.
Doctors are coming in at 1:00 to check his skin grafts. Hes running ahead of schedule. Yea!!!
