Today was our post op visit. (Yes, post operation. To which operation? Cause we've all lost track? It doesn't matter.)
We were able to rid ourselves of the oxygen tanks today. Which is a huge relief to all of us, and give Jack a better sense of freedom. Not to mention our freedom as well. In addition to that, Jack's picture looked good. Still, that little mysterious fluid/scarring shows up, but it is nothing we are worried about. Jack weighs 9.5 kilos. Which is about 20 lbs. He is tiny. So, so tiny. They took off his steri-strips that have been over his incision for weeks. We went down again on the diuretic's. His potassium still low. But all in all he is getting better and he is HAPPY about it.
We celebrated by letting him run around in the obnoxious chaos at Gateway. He never got too wet, because he's still very cautious about getting his incision wet. But he loved every minute of it and his smiles made my day.
