…still a lil cranky today, however, we had our moments of fun. We went down to the playroom a few times and even played some fun made-up games in his bed.
He did wake up today from his nap screaming with pain. So, he was given a little extra pain meds, additionally because they also surprised us with the news that they are planning on taking out his chest tubes. We were all in the room when they did it, and, to be honest, it was kinda gnarly. However, I think he liked it after it was done…a real “weight off his chest.” 😏
The surgeon came in again today to check up on him and said that he’s still looking good. They would like to “pull-off” some more fluid in his chest, but they are giving him plenty of diuretics to get that done.
He does look better everyday. Tomorrow will be one full week since his surgery, and I would say he’s done quite well!
I ran across a passage in my reading this morning that I remember embracing just a few short years ago when this journey began. It’s a passage that gave me great hope and peace, and thankfully came to fruition in more ways than I could have ever imagined.
2 “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?”
3 “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.
