Day 17 Post Op

Well, sorry for not updating, I thought it had been weeks since surgery.  I went back to calculate how long C has had to gain weight and realized that last Thursday was just 2 weeks post op.  It has been a crazy whirlwind.  I had no idea he'd be so active so quickly.  We are still having some issues with sleep and routine after having everything tossed in the air and mixed up in the hospital.

We were giving C a dose of ibuprofen before bed, we tried a night without it and it seems we aren't quite there yet.

The big news is that C has gained almost 1 lb in the 2 weeks since surgery.  He eats more than he used to and his body is working less.  It is already paying off.  We may even hit the growth charts again soon!

  2. Isn't it amazing how quickly they get energy and an appetite after surgery?

    Izzy is a few days shy of six months post op and she went from 14 pounds to 22!
    This kid loves to eat now that she has the energy for it :)
