Post-Op Day 11
So a couple days ago when we said 7 more days...apparently that was a lie. We were told today that we would be here about two more weeks. Drew's chest tubes are still putting out a significant amount so they will not be pulled before the antibiotics are finished. On the positive side, Drew had a very good day today activity-wise. He went to preschool in the lounge, played in the playroom twice and took quite a few steps around the train. His friend Eben came to visit today along with Eben's mommy and daddy and baby sister. I got out for a bicycle ride with Pete (Eben's daddy) which really was a great diversion from the hospital. Andrea went for a walk with Jen (Eben's mommy) while Drew took a nap and Eben watched a movie with Drew's Grandma Kathy. Just now the nurse changed Drew's bandages and there is a portion at the very top of his incision that looks worse than the section that they debrided and packed. Until now, the part at the top had only been slightly red (we thought from his chin resting on it) and not oozing at all. Awesome. Can't wait to hear what the surgeons say about this one. Tune in tomorrow for the update.
