Post-op Day 2

Yesterday was pretty rough for Joshua. He had a lot of discomfort and restlessness. It made for a very long day. It's all a part of the process, probably the worst part in my opinion. But hopefully the worst has passed. He has done a great job moving around and sitting up etc. He sat on my lap several times out of bed which has been nice. It's good for him to move around.
He had his 3 favorite buddies visit in the evening. Despite the miserable day, it boosted his spirits. It was so nice to be together as a family for a couple hours. We are so appreciative of my parents and sister Molly for taking such good care of our 3 other kids in our absence.
Hopefully today will be a better day. Josh has been moving forward, which is great news. He's had such amazing nurses, so kind and gentle. He has no anxiety because they are so good with him. It makes such a difference.
I've got to run, Josh needs my undivided attention. Thanks for checkin in on us:)

Day 2 is always the hardest! I'm so glad he had time with his fav three. I hope you guys get a little sleep and Josh starts to feel better!

We are glad to see an update! I hope that he can get over the initial pain hump quickly so that you can both be a little more comfortable! I am glad you have great nurses. They really make all of the difference in the world!

:( Poor Joshie. It makes me so sad to picture him uncomfortable. I really hope he gets through this part quick and is back to his rowdy self soon. I am so glad the girls and Sammy were able to brighten his day (yours and Jon's too--I'm sure). Sending lots of love your way. Thanks for all the great updates!
