Rayyan sleeping in Ronald McDonald House

Rayyan has been discharged from the hospital today. He is allowed to stay with us in our accomodation, Ronald McDonald House which is just accross the road from the hospital. If anything happens, the hospital and emergency ward is very close about 5 minutes walk and we can call the medical team.We only need to bring Rayyan in to do some medical check up every morning. He was very subdued and not himself before they took out all his wires and tubes that were attached at his body. However, when they took it out, he was so happy and become very chatty, smiling and occasionally became very cheeky.
He is not taking much fluid as he supposed to, a constant battle on making sure he is growing well and putting on weight. But he tolerates solid food much better after having surgery. He still a bit wobbly on his legs but not stopping him from moving around a lot. Few weeks later, probably I will need to be much more faster to chase him.
The medical team said at first we might be able to fly back to Adelaide on friday. Scanning his heart today, there were more fluid around the heart so probably next week depend on his condition. Women and Children Hospital Adelaide will follow up with Rayyan health when we returned.

I haven't followed Ryan's story before now. Usually just your gardening posts. I'm so glad to see that he is up and about. Were they able to correct his TOF? I hope this is the last surgery he requires.

Kat said...

I'm sure he will bounce back very quickly, you'll have your hands full keeping up with him.
