Post op day 2

We had such a great day!!! We decided to try just giving him tylenol instead of oxycodone and that seems to have really helped him.  The oxy just had him acting like a completely different person.  Last night he woke up and was having a bad dream.  He was just thrashing all around in the bed and tried to pull the strips off of his incision.  Then the incision started bleeding and of course that was painful.  It took us a while to wake him up and get him calmed down.  After that, he didn't want me to leave his bed so I "slept" on a sliver of the bed with an IV tube draped over my face.  Ha!  I am really hoping tonight is our night to get some rest.  The doctor came in and looked at the incision today and doesn't think he did any damage to it.  Thank GOD.  Hopefully now that he isn't taking the oxy he won't have any crazy dreams!! His swelling has definitely increased but it is still nothing compared to last time.  Little Violet has been so sweet to Lincoln.  She just can't get enough hugs and kisses from him.  I mean who can blame her?!  He is the best big brother.  

We had lots of company today.  Lara and Charly stopped by on their lunch break to check out Lincoln's new haircut.  I think Charly was jealous.  ;) Then Sullivan, Lincoln's first little friend in Nashville, and her hot mom came to visit!   We were also lucky enough to get to see the Olson family and crazy Will!  I wish someone had a video of us playing BINGO.  It was a tad stressful but we had some big winners!  Seeing these kids has really helped lift Lincoln's spirits.  Also, I am not sure what we would do without my parents being here and taking care of Violet.  That is no small job!  We owe them each one pony.  Kaitlin has also devoted her whole week to being here and helping us at the hospital.  It seriously does take a village!

We just finished up our nightly ice cream run and are getting ready to give Lincoln his first bath since the surgery.  Kaitlin and I also just sucked some helium and sang some Meghan Trainor.  Gotta support those BYD artists.  ;) Lincoln thinks we are pretty dang cool!  Thank you again for all your prayers.  Hoping we get out of here on Sunday!!!

                                            She has been very worried about him!
                                          I hope they always love each other this much.
                                                    Fun times with Sullie Bug
