Day 41 and we have poop!

Okay, okay, I know the world doesn't revolve around poop, but at least John's world does and last night was the first poop that we've had since surgery. He's still kinda ouchy but is finally more hydrated and so isn't screaming for water every moment. He was able to sit up and play for about 1 1/2 hours today and I have hopes of taking him out for a stroller ride this afternoon. We're waiting now for the q-ball, local anesthetic directly applied to his tummy since surgery, to be taken off and then it will be time to go for a ride :) He should have his upper gi on Thursday and then after that if all goes well they should start g-tube feeds. Ah, the next step on getting back to out-patient status which is the next big step on the way home.

I know how important this big step is for John. Yeah for him.

Hee, hee. The weird things we moms praise God for, eh? :) I have had major surgery myself, and that first one post-op is a Big Deal!
