After a very rough start of the day, we are coming into an evening that is a bit more peaceful! He finally was able to eat something tonight and it exhausted him – he fell asleep while still chewing last bite.
I showed him a picture of himself and he thinks the surgeon did a really nice haircut on him😊. I will pass that on to Dr Kennedy in the morning. I will post a picture in another couple of days. The incisions are still yucky but no drainage this afternoon, a healthy sign. No seizures🙌
The biggest struggle is keeping his head elevated and his left hand from pulling out his drain. So, I keep on a vigilant watch – I think I am exactly where I need to be. He also likes me to hold his hand – likes me to stay close during our extended sleep over. Pray that I can catch a few wisps of sleep tonight.
Because there are no visitors allowed, the other mom in the room and I have become each other’s cheerleaders. I have a wonderful group that has ordered food vouchers for me so that I can have a tray delivered to my room. The first food tray I got tonight was immediately followed by a second one. The kitchen made a mistake and just told me to eat that too for free. So, since the other mom in the room had no food today- she got blessed by the “mistake” tray. Isn’t that cool of God to look out for us all?
Slow steady progress marks the end of day 2
