Day After Surgery
Last night was a pretty good one for Tim. He surprised me by how alert and lively he was last evening and stayed awake off and on until about 1 this morning. He finally figured out how to fall asleep without setting off his Oxygen alarm around 2 and slept as well as anyone could expect when being poked and prodded every few hours. So far we have seen 2 doctors this morning, one from Dr. Robbins practice and most recently Dr. Robbins himself. Both said he was looking great and they expect him to get up and walk around the wing today. He has been upgraded to clear liquids so they brought him a wonderful breakfast of apple juice, tea, green jello and a Luigi's lemon icy thing. Tim choose to only eat the icy and I can't say I blame him at all. After he ate he burped twice which is a great sign that his digestive system is getting itself started back up. I just helped the nurse place him into a chair where he has been sitting for about 30 minutes now and is doing great. He was also able to brush his teeth and was given a sponge bath. Not exactly the hot young nurse that he had originally envisioned but she had a great personality :) Overall he is doing a fantastic job and I couldn't be more proud of him. He still has a long road to a full recovery but is taking some amazing strides at getting there.
