M is finally asleep. He has such a strong will. He didn't really nap at all since the surgery and he finally fell asleep at 8:45. I am going to go to bed soon too as I have heard they will be in at midnight and 4:00am for meds and vitals.
He had a great dinner. It didn't come until after 7:00 so he was very hungry. The food place kept saying that the "clear liquids" label on his chart hadn't been lifted so they wouldn't let me order for a while. He ate a lot of baked chicken breast (like 2.5 servings I would guess since it was a bone in breast) and a few peas. He really has resisted drinking any fluids. He has to drink more before they will release him, so please pray that he will have a much bigger desire to drink tomorrow.
He really doesn't like taking meds. I imagine this is going to get much worse at home. Please pray that he will be willing to take the meds so that the pain can be less.
I think he was really feeling a lot of pain tonight before bed. Hopefully the 8:00 dose of meds will help allow for some sleep.
There have been a lot of tears today, mostly he wants to be home. He misses Grandma and Grandpa and T and Daddy! I know he is really looking forward to being released.
Since arriving at the room he has watched DVD's, gone to the floor playroom twice to play, made a walking circle around the 10th floor, read books, sat a long time at the end of the floor viewing area to look out at the city. I am sure you know that he was thrilled to see several ambulances. We have been busy.
He continues to ask every few hours, "Are my tonsils out?" I guess he is just making sure.
Tonight while trying to rig something out for my pillow I knocked a water bottle all over my PJ's. I am a bit soggy, but better me than M. I am going to attempt to sleep with M on the single hospital bed. I am pretty tired so I think I will manage.
Thank you for all of your prayers today! We can feel them. So far no blood and no vomit. I call that a major victory. Also, I just noticed that his snoring is much softer than it has been. This is a surprise as they said it could take 3 weeks to notice any difference in breathing. Yay!
