Apollo Update

posted in: Apollo | 18

Mom called me around 12:00 today with this update.

Apollo’s chest tube and arterial line are out. He just had his first meal, he ate scrambled eggs, waffles, jello, and a popsicle. He’s doing good, acting all goofy and silly, probably because of the medicine he’s getting. If everything goes well, they might be able to come home Saturday!!!

  6. I am so pleased he is eating and feeling okay. Poor little guy has had such a rough time. I bet you all can’t wait to have him home so you can help him recover with lots of cuddles and hugs and kisses.

    That is beyond amazing.He was meant to have this surgery so he could get passed all the trouble of his first year of life and begin to live a more healthy and active life 🙂 xx

    1. Nice to see he has an appetite.
    2. Great to hear that he’s on the mend.
    3. I really want some jello & a Popsicle now.
    4. In Ireland we use the names ‘Jelly’ and ‘Icepops’, so ‘jello’ & ‘popsicle’ sounds really strange when I say it.

    I found myself thinking about you guys on the 7th, but I didn’t even check your blog because for some reason I thought his surgery was on the 10th (I know, a Saturday… but thinking maybe you do things differently on the west coast, lol) Wanted to leave a comment the night before surgery, got here and he already had it! Wow! I’m praying that he gets to go home tomorrow! I know you guys are glad to have it behind you!

  18. Oh, what wonderful news! Thank you so much for posting the updates, Adalia, and I am so thankful to the Lord for his goodness to Apollo!

Please share your thoughts!
