Ben is doing well!

Today Ben has been fussy, but doing fine. His effusion is looking better again. They still are talking Fri-Sat for discharge. Although we will need to follow up with Dr Lacina right away to make sure things are on track. We are all doing ok and I am getting nervous about going home, just because he will be on 7 medications. Of which 3 are critical to him staying on track and need to be given in a very timely fashion 3-4 times a day. Today I plan to take Ally to the gym to get some of her energy burnt off. Have a great day.


  1. Love the smile, keep strong Ben!
    Liz, I'm sure you and Dan will do great with his care and meds at home. I would think his recovery and attitude would be better once you get home in familiar surroundings.
    You guys do an awesome job with both Ben and Ally, you'll do fine! Take care and look forward to seeing you guys soon! Praying for all of you.

  2. He looks great and that smile is priceless! Don't worry about the meds at home, you have dealt with much tougher stuff when you came home from the first surgery. You can do anything, you are a heart mom!
