Well it's been a long Thanksgiving weekend. Peyton actually was able to go out to his first Thanksgiving and on the ride there, Rick and I talked about "when we were going to Thanksgiving last year...Peyton was in the hospital..."... He's grown so much since then.
Other than that, they took out his "pig tail" or the tube that drained the fluid from his chest. I didn't realize they did it and the nurse started to walk away with the box from it and I said "what are you doing with that?" and she said "oh, we took it out!" So that was good news too.
He was actually acting like himself more. He was getting fussy and cranky a little bit and he was just more acting "like a baby". When Rick came to visit on the 27th, he wasnt about to open his eyes. Rick said "you know when i leave, he's goign to open them."... Sure enough, rick said "bye Peyton, Daddy loves you" and he opened them a minute later and looked for Rick. He was such an ornry baby already.
After all of the struggles to get to where we are now, things seemed to start going better. They slowly weened Peyton off of his meds and off of his wires that were all over him.
pardon the order of picture, for some reason it wont let me rearrange them. Things have slowed down on my posting for Peyton b/c he'd been doing soooo good in the hospital so all i have are pictures to show. Keep checkin for more.
