Well here we are post op, day 1. Joshua had a very restless night, but on the bright side, medically, he's been just fine. He insisted that I lay in bed with him, so that's where I've spent my time. I'm actually holding him right now. Any movement of his body is very painful, so I'm trying hard to be careful with his little healing body. He's been putting off fluid like a champ all on his own, but was just given his first dose of lasix, which will help him put off more fluid. As of now, no major concerns. Things are looking good!
By the way, I know a few of you wondered if he was extubated in the OR...yes, he was. Pretty amazing. Also, his coloring is great! I'll try and post a picture or two later.
