Follow up appointment

We had our follow up appointment yesterday.  They took the last stitch out of Tru's chest tube wound and answered a bunch of questions we had.  It was pretty uneventful...not even a blood test.  His next ultrasound is scheduled for Jan 13th.  I asked the doctor if he thought his liver would be healed by then.  He said he would be surprised because it was a pretty deep "crack".  I am really hoping Tru surprises the doctors once again, and we can all breathe a little easier after the 13th. 
I also turned in my FMLA paperwork yesterday.  I put Jan 26th as my expected return date.  We'll see....

OMG Deb! What a shock! I can't begin to imagine what you have been through. Jesse left for college at KU this fall. It felt like there was a hole in my heart when he left. I know it must have felt like your heart was ripped out when they took Tru away in the helicopter. Our babies will always hold our hearts. Rely on your strong faith during this difficult time. You, James and Tru are in my thoughts and prayers. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do!
Love,
Karla
