Post Surgery and More
What time is it? Ha, I don't even know what day it is. That has been the general feeling since the surgery. We find ourselves asking when did Eli eat. When did he sleep? When did he get medication? When was the last time he had anything to drink? Did he go to the bathroom? Has he gone for a walk in a while? What time will the nurse be in to check his vitals? Should we let him take a nap? Who is staying the night with him? And so on and so on.
Eli is doing great. He is eating, and sleeping, and walking and taking his meds and so on. There have been little obstacles along the way, but the doctors and nurses are really pleased with his progress. We are really proud of him. I can't imagine being his age and trying to understand everything that is going on.
He loves to go to the playroom and play. He also loves going for walks or riding in the car because he knows that sometime when he gets back to the room there are presents from his friends waiting.
