ICU on Day Three

1:04- We are getting ready to move to Peds. He says he is hurting a lot.
12:50pm- John is sitting in his chair, eating a few bites. He looks really tired so he'll probably go to bed soon.
12:25pm- John took some steps around his ICU room- not a fun activity for him. He is having muscle spasms. The physician's assistants said to massage his back around the incision and to have him blow bubbles to loosen the congestion.
A glimpse of a smile!
10:05am- John ate some of his eggs, bagel and a few bites of his cereal for breakfast. They moved him into the chair for it. It is still no fun to be moved. He is being brave about the pain.
John had a tough night with fever and pain. The fever left but he still looks flushed. The nurses are keeping an eye on that. Dad is with John now while Mom is resting after taking the night shift.

Thanks for all of the updates on the blog. Glad to hear that this surgery has been easier and that his fever has dropped. Hello to everyone and especially John. Tell him we are thinking of him and to keep up the good work. Aunt Hester A.
