Happy Hump Day Everyone! It's literally been a hump for us today! Matthew had a temp of 100.7 overnight, but all day it's been right at 98. :-) He's been up all day, walking around and playing the Wii in the Playroom here at the hospital. His IV has been disconnected, but they left the "heplock" in to give IV pain meds if needed. He still has his epidural and catheter. (Like most "men", he doesn't like the catheter AT ALL!)
Last night, he looked at me, and told me to "Tell Dad to stop snoring. He's too loud & I can't sleep." Jason was sleeping in the parent's bed next to the window at the time so it was pretty funny. Also, Matt has been eating much better ( M&M's and Butterfingers) and drinking so that's a good thing! Granny's been keeping him busy and making sure he gets a bath every day. For those who know my Mom, this isn't a surprise.
His surgeon came by this afternoon while I was home sleeping, and he said that if he continues to improve, he'll probably get to go home this weekend. I had planned on posting some pics of Matthew, but I forgot the USB cable that attaches the camera to the computer so it'll be another day. Hopefully I'll remember to bring it tomorrow. I am headed to work so Jason will be sitting with him tonight. Fortunately, I work at the same hospital so I can periodically come check on him. I work on the ground floor, and he's on the 4th floor so it's not too bad.
Thank you for all your continued prayers and support. We really appreciate all of you.
Dea & Jason
