and this morning there was this!
my goodness what a difference one night can do!
as of 7:00 this morning, rogan is
peeing on his own (no catheter),
taking only oral medicines for pain as needed (tylenol with codeine),
opening both eyes (or as wide as his naturally squinty eyes can be open),
moving around (and pulling off sensors),
and ready to go home!
|i know it looks gross, but everyone is saying the incision looks "great." eww, i don't know about "great."|
they are telling us that we will go home sometime today. we are waiting on the final blood tests, but dr. myseros has cleared us to go home as long as the tests are good.
he doesn't seem to be in a lot of pain and generally just his happy self.
the Lord has seen us through a rough couple of days, but we are so blessed and thankful for His continued provision and peace. thank you to all of the people (and when i say ALL, i mean hundreds, from all over the country, and most of my home county) who were praying and calling and texting and emailing their kind words and thoughts this week. you all made this so much easier to endure.
it's so great to be on the other side of the surgery and well on our way to a full recovery!
**update** we are home as of 2:00pm today! we have a prescription for tylenol with codeine and he is doing really well. we gave him a little sponge bath (targeting his head). man, it is coated and matted down with this nasty iodine-glue stuff that they use during the surgery to disinfect. it may be days of scrubbing before that stuff comes off. it was nice to clean him up a bit though and he is now sleeping like a baby!
