Well little man had a good day. I forgot to mention earlier that they took him off of the paralytic yesterday, he didn't really move until last night around midnight when he started moving his fingers and toes. He also started urinating (can't remember if I mentioned that in the last post) but that is good because he was able to drain a lot of the fluids out of his body allowing it to kind of decompress. They said he got enough out that they are going to close his chest tomorrow morning at 8.
We went down to see him today, but because we have sick kids at home we limited ourselves on our time. He looks so good without all those fluids swelling him up, and every time Amanda or I talked he would open his eyes and look around. They are keeping him on a pain med so he doesn't move much, but that is a good thing. He is a tough little guy, as we sat there staring at him I was amazed at the thought that I have never had to pass through anything close to that tough physically. What a special little guy.
On a separate note, we want to thank everyone for their kindness and generosity towards us at this time. We haven't had to cook dinner all week and our kids have been well taken care of in our absence. We love all of you, people are so good and amazing!
