Happy Birthday to ME! Today I am 3 weeks old! It's pretty humbling to think of all I have been through in those 3 weeks, more than most go through in a life time. Everyone knew I was a tough guy - that's why Daddy picked the name Maximus, and I have certainly proved that!
Today has been a pretty quiet day - Mom & I have done a lot of napping! We are both ready to go home! I have been able to completely finish my last 3 bottles, so hopefully the feeding tube will not be in long. (it will go home with me - but they will put in a 30 day one so mom & dad will not have to change it - just remove it when the time comes!)
The nurse said that they will probably remove my heart monitor today, in preparation of being able to go home tomorrow! I may be released as early as noon (Thursday 2/5/09). I can't wait.
I have had several requests for close up pictures of me - I'm sure lots will be taken tomorrow when I leave the hospital - we will post some then! If you are lucky I may even autograph one for you :0)
