Day 2 post op
Great day! James woke up sore but had a decent night, so he was happy. We pretty much hung out in bed all day until he was unhooked from the TPN and his iron supplement. They wanted him to start moving around a little more, so we doped him up on some pain killers and went to play. I really didn't think he was going to want to walk much, but after a short wagon ride, he got out and pushed the wagon himself all over the hospital, then took a car ride, then played with an obnoxious phone, walked to the kitchen a few times, pushed another car, played with some trucks and trains, and finally asked to get back in bed. lol Cute kid. His surgeon came in just before all this and said that he looks great and if anything he wants to eat is just fine. This is...incredible. James wasn't originally supposed to eat anything until late tomorrow, so this was a huge relief. He actually wasn't that interested in milk, but he did eat 3 squares of a chocolate bar. I had to stop him just to make sure he didn't overdo it! He hasn't gained any weight, but he hasn't lost any, so we're doing well!
