Courey, that's so good to know about the apnea/morphine connection. It has happened a couple of times today, but not as much as during the night.
As far as moving to a room-room, the critical care doc came in a bit ago and tried to get a read on what we thought would be best (should we stay or should we go?). He wasn't very concerned about the apnea either, but did have some concerns about the retching. At any rate, he's deferring to the plastic surgeon.
Singing the praises of Vandy: I like the MWF omelet station myself!! And, sometimes that "boutiquey" place has good stuff too.
And then there's the Ronald McDonald room . . . though it's usually way too crowded for my taste.
Sam, yep, it's Vandy in Nashville (where ALL the pretty nurses work, which is great when you haven't showered in a couple of days
) Check into Dr. Stephen Goudy and Dr. Kevin Kelly (they're both on the cranio-facial team, both ENTs and Dr. Kelly is a plastic surgeon, too). Goudy, in particular, is, I would think, kind of on the cutting edge of stuff. But, then, Dr. Kelly said that he's only had two "revisions" of this procedure in 20 years of doing it - so I'm thinking that's a pretty good track record. He's NOT arrogant, though, which is also refreshing (Goudy's younger and got a little more swagger, but I still LOVE him). Regardless, they are both really willing to talk with you and treat you like a team member, something I really value, and I know you would. And most of the doctors that I've encountered here really understand and operate under the team mentality (amongst themselves, the nurses, AND the parents). So, now that my Vandy commercial is completed . . . .
