Post-Op Update

Cade came through the surgery just fine. He hasn't handled this one quite as well as his previous two surgeries but I'm not sure if it's because this pain is worse or because he's getting older. He was pretty cranky on Wednesday when he first got back to his room. He did get better as the day went on. I stayed home with him yesterday and we either rocked in the recliner or laid on the couch together. Our house has been extremely quiet because he doesn't feel like making his shooting noises right now. They told us that day's 5, 6, & 7 are the worse in terms of pain so we'll see how that goes. That would mean Sunday would be the start of the not so good days. We are keeping him well medicated...even setting our alarm to wake up and midnight and 4 to dose him again. We are really hoping once we get through the next couple of weeks we are through medicating his throat!
