Really though, he is doing great. He's moving around so much better than I thought he would be able to (better than I did after my surgery so many years ago!). He's decided to stop taking the prescribed Percocet, and is only taking Motrin for pain. His first physical therapy appointment is tomorrow morning, and his post-op appointment is June 12th.
My dad drove into town to help with the girls, so the day of surgery we left Sydney at home with him, but Lorelei accompanied us. It was a long day at the hospital, but she was a trooper.
I had plenty of time to play with Instagram in the waiting room:
3 days post-op (he's going to get me for posting these):
4 days post-op (we just removed the giant bandage):
4-day old incisions compared to 13-year old scars:
Now he's allowed to get the incisions wet and use bandaids alone to cover them. Speaking of bandaids...the only ones we had in the house at the time were Princess bandaids. I've since purchased manly bandaids.
Hmm, I just realized the pictures were sort of gross...sorry about that!
