On this our sixth day after surgery, Sam is a little more painful and uncomfortable than the past few days as we've decided to start weaning him off his pain meds so he had a not-too-pleasant night last night and was quite miserable this morning. Instead of having him go "cold turkey" and seeing how upset he was this morning, we've put him back on a half dose of the meds for another day or two and then try again without from Monday. The thing about the meds is that, although I obviously do not want him to have to endure any unnecessary pain, I am a little worried about the affects of having been on them for six days now and am also worried that, while pretty much painfree, he is hindering his healing by being as active and super-busy as always.
Today we are going to try Sam with some sitting up....but in between that, we'll still be.....
Spending time in the pram
Having Brampa and Meg sing Mickey Mouse Clubhouse songs
Sam's "sore" area which has somehow managed to stay pretty much in tact considering the amount of rough and tumbling Sam has put it through - quite remarkable.
And just a random pic of our precious little boy!
We are very relaxed and low-key today, my mom is coming down tomorrow to spend a couple of days with our family and, of course, to see Sam. So, to all our family, friends and loyal followers - we wish you a Blessed Merry Christmas and thank you for being a precious part of our journey so far.
