Tuesday Update

D continues to make improvement! He ended up napping for about 3 hours yesterday afternoon. When he woke up, he was definitely still in some pain and a bit edgy but he ate a pretty good dinner consisting of 'roni and cheese and almost a whole banana.

He slept great last night. He didn't really making a sound until about 5:45 this morning. And then by the time I got to his room with medicine, he had fallen back to sleep. He woke up again a bit after 7 and appeared to be pretty disoriented and in some pain. He slept on me for a while and then as he woke back up, I changed his diaper and gave him some more medicine (still the strong stuff). He had a fever of 102.2 and I talked to the CM nurse and they said that's higher than they like to see it. She said it was too early for infection, but he could be coming down with some other virus. It broke after giving him his medicine, so I'll just keep an eye on it and if not might take him in to see Dr. Kate. He perked up quite a bit after his medicine kicked in and ate a very good breakfast with Aunt Ni Ni. He seemed much more chipper, but definitely isn't back to his normal self. I'm at work, but he's in good hands with papa. He's been asleep again for about 1 1/2 hours, so hopefully he'll continue to improve quickly. This surgery has definitely been much more intense than the last one, and I know he'll be fine but I'm anxious for him to get back to his normal happy self!

A quick shout out to everybody that came up to the hospital yesterday to keep me company! As I mentioned previously, Kylie and Jody surprised us at the hospital. My mom, dad, Aunt Andrea, Aunt Ni Ni and Beth also came up to the hospital to keep me company while D was in surgery. It's a pretty stressful time and I can't say thank you enough to everybody for taking time out of their days to be there to support us. It means a ton! Also, thanks for all the texts/e-mails of encouragement. I appreciate them all, even if I'm not always the most responsive!

Eating dinner last night on the mommy high chair!

Opening presents from the Stump fam!
Eating a sucker this morning...Aunt Nicki said I was being a pushover, but if ever he needs spoiling, I think it's now!!

He fell asleep about 5 minutes into the walk with Aunt Nicki this morning!

  1. Thanks for the update. I think more suckers is a good prescription.
