Joshua- 4 months

Joshua- 4 months
March 9, 2010

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Both sides of his head have been shaved in an effort of finding a main vein. After countless of unsuccessful tries in grabbing a vein, they eventually decided to run the iv through his groin area. This iv will help the process of the blood transfusion. If he continues to do well , the surgery will be on Friday. Joshua is also having trouble with his bowel movement, we are hoping that it will improve tomorrow.
Joshua has gone through allot today, and continues to be a strong baby. He has been poke by a needle several times. He had a risky surgery after the unsuccessful attempts of finding a vein. Also, Melissa finally met Joshua today, and touch his little hands.

  1. He is so beautiful Melissa. Can't really tell who he looks like more but I see both of you in him I hope everything continues to go well, Joshua has his surgery on Friday and you get to have your little boy home very soon. You guys deserve to be happy. Simeon is pretty sick today. That is why I couldn't come see you last night. I don't want to bring anything that would make you guys sick. See you soon.

    PARKING NEWS!
    For anyone who plans on visiting Melissa and would like to save a few bucks you can park at the "Brown Surface Lot" located right between Braeswood and Old Spanish Trail. You may enter this lot through either street. Please know, this parking lot is off site and away from the hospital however there is a Metro bus running throughout the day/evening for workers and visitors. The ride is free and very short with St. Luke's being one of the first few stops. To be certain, just let the driver know where you are heading to and he will let you know which stop is the correct one. Once you get off the bus, You will see MD Anderson to the right corner and St. Lukes to the left corner.

    Directions to the Brown Lot:
    -Take 610 exit Fannin make a Right..
    -Head down to Old Spanish Trail (about 4-5 lights)..make a Right.
    **Since this lot is on the edge of hte Med Ctr, I highly recommend coming through 610 rather than 59 (or take 59 onto 288 south onto 610. It will allow you to avoid the lights/traffic/madness down Fannin**
    -Parking lot will be on your left hand side. You can't miss it.
    -As you enter, drive all the way through to the very last sectioned lot on your left. All other sections are contract parking only.
    -When catching the bus make sure you wait at the bus stop on the opposite side of the street from where you parked.
    -Bus will drop you off at the corner of Bates and Bertner. Just follow the sidewalk to your left down Bates St. and you will arrive at the entrance closest to the Yellow elevators.

    Parking Rates:
    1-4 hours = $1
    4-6 hours = $2
    6-8 hours = $4
    8-24 hrs = $6

    Hope this information is useful for you all!
