Sammy update

I can't say thank you enough for all your thoughts and prayers. They really must have been heard, and quick.
Sam went from being in the ICU and having the doctor saying she was not sure what was going on with him and thinking of shipping him to the biggest hospital in the state, to making enough of a recovery, that he was able to go home.

He is still not 100% in the clear. He is a very little guy, as you all know and he lost some weight. His appetite is close to nothing still but we are working on that. Being at the hospital and being poked and prodded so much, he was quite stressed. Being able to be home now has helped put a little bit of pep back into his step. He is still quite energetic and has had a few vomiting spells, but seems to be making some positive recoveries.
He has quite a few bruises and blisters/rashes from the tape and adhesive. His pointer finger is one giant blister from the nurse wrapping his hand so tight that first night. :(
He does keep rubbing his head occassionally, which bothers me for obvious reasons. Probably because of our history as a family. I am just gonna keep an eye on that for now.
Continued thoughts and prayers would be appreciated and thank you!

Oh Heather! I'm so relieved to hear that Sammy is doing better. My heart sank when I read your post from the 15th.

Sorry I've been so out-of-touch. I'm in a bubble, but I hope you that I'm here anytime!
