hangin’ in there

Sorry it took me so long to get this updated today.  I wrote a post earlier and it must not have taken so I’ll do it again.  Ryan’s head CT from earlier today was negative so there is nothing going on there we need to worry about.  He has some expected post op changes but the radiologist and pediatrician were not concerned.  He had a decent day and slept until early afternoon then took a good nap later.  There has not been any fluid to drain from his stomach which means his intestines were not backing up.  Until tonight that is.  I just got about 2 Tbsp of residual fluid out and he is hurting.  I brought the kids home from the hospital and he was really crying and feeling crummy when I left.  The nurse and I both think he has gas pains in his abdomen which is common with an ileus but it’s hard to watch him hurting and not being able to take the pain away immediately.  There isn’t a whole lot we can do for him either except try some Tylenol and a suppository to see if we can get the gas out of his system.  Please pray he will have a peaceful, rested night.  I need the sleep desperately too only getting just under three hours of sleep since Sunday morning.  Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Several have asked about Travis and he is doing fairly well. He’s still hobbling around but has started to put some weight on his right foot.  It’s been about twelve days since the screw was put in his foot and he doesn’t ever complain.  He sees the doctor again on Wednesday and is back to work in the office this week. 

Thank you for your continued prayers for healing.  Much love to you all.
