Tim had a great day today. We only woke up once last night and slept almost 12 hours. It put a small dent into the lack of sleep we both have after last week.
Tim laid in bed for about 3 hrs this morning in order to air out his incision. During that time he ate double of what he has eaten the whole day in the hospital. He stomach is also looking much less swollen today (although after the busy day he had it was looking a little puffy tonight). We took a walk around the circle in our neighborhood which is the furthest he has gone yet, he even managed to tackle a few very small hills. He spent the afternoon sitting up in a chair watching Glee with me. Steven came over after work to beat Tim at football on the PS3.
Thanks to our friend John who helped me switch our showerhead for a handheld version today as well as Tim's dad for supervising him again, Tim was able to successfully get a shower for the first time at our house. He looks so much better today than he has in awhile.
We weren't able to get in with Dr. Edenfield as there are a few tests Tim needs to have before an appointment would do much good but he did call us today and Tim is hoping to touch base with him to get a few questions answered tomorrow morning. As for now we are laying in bed (well he is in bed and I'm on the floor next to him on the Aerobed which is an incredible upgrade from the hospital cot) and watching the Food Network. Amazingly Tim just got hungry for the first time as we were watching a show featuring donuts covered in a maple glaze and dipped in fresh bacon bits. I think we may make our first field trip out tomorrow for some Dunkin Doughnuts for him. The strides he is making everyday are astounding and we are hoping for the best as we head through the next few weeks and months. Please continue to keep all of us in your thoughts and prayers as we have a long journey ahead of us.
