First day after surgery

Well today has been rough. When we arrived at the hospital Robert was literally screaming in pain. He constantly complains of tummy pain which the doctors feel confident is from Robert’s two chest tubes. Unfortunately those tubes have to remain his entire hospital stay. After a dose of morphine midmorning, he seems to be feeling better. He still hurts but he’s been more willing to eat and he’s not screaming any more. We even got him to sit in a chair and stand up this afternoon.



We have been told that Robert has transfer orders and as soon as a room opens up for him he can move out of the PCICU. We are hoping this happens soon. I think Robert is wanting more privacy.

Thank you for your continued prayers. Our boy is sleeping now on his own- no morphine. Praising God for that.

    Hope the move sets him more at ease. Could be all the meds without much food on his stomach making it hurt. You guys are pros at this know personally it is not easy though. Praying it is smooth sailing from here.
