Last night his blood gas c02 remained at 56 which we were very happy about. I got that update when I called in this morning and was very excited to see him when we got to the hospital. I hurriedly washed up and walked to his room. As I rounded the corner I was greated with …………..empty space! Greyson was gone. Apparently he had jumped out of his crib and crawled away some time during the night. I know the feeling as a couple weeks ago when Stacy got up to pump I woke up just enough to look at the recliner and scream out, “where’s Greyson!? Where’s Greyson!?” Stacy calmly replied, “well he’s still in the hospital” “Oh”, I replied, “that makes sense” and I went back to sleep.
OK so Greyson in fact did not jump out of his crib and is not crawling anywhere just yet, but in fact he is no longer the pillar of room B. I went into the hall to tell Stacy that they had moved him and ran into the Dr. who took me to find him. He led me into room E saying he had just seen Greyson a little bit earlier and was very pleased with his progress. Well he wasn’t in room E but we did track him down in room C (don’t blame the Dr, they see a lot of babies and they usually move around a lot! Greyson has been very unusual by the fact that he has stayed in the same place for so long). Room C is OK, it’s a little more cramped but is a step towards the door and moving upstairs.
I am also very happy to report that Greyson’s 1pm blood gas found him with a c02 of 50!! That’s my boy!!
