We're ready to move! Technically, we're not quite ready yet, as the nurses haven't indicated a quick escape, but emotionally and physically we're ready. Steven's in a steady pattern of eating, sitting, watching t.v. or surfing the web, and snacking on Vicadin. While his neck is still very stiff, he's doing much better, 48 hours post-op, than he did last time. And while the ICU is comfy and private with possibly the world's sweetest nurses, we're definitely ready to move on!
Steven has had the post-op MRI and CT scan. The drs have visited on rounds. I believe that most meds have ended, with the exception of pain pills and steroids. So, we are simply holding steady and waiting for a little more healing and a little more mobility before we come home...tomorrow!
Thanks you for the many thoughts and prayers.
Steven is in a regular room now on the adult neuro-floor. I use the term "regular" very loosely here, as he has a huge room with a great view...and only one bed!
So, all is well ~ very, very well ~ in the world of recovery.
And now the pics...but if you are newly pregnant, naturally queasy or eating a snack...scroll down fast!
The bandage is off, to Steven's great relief.
While the incision is ghastly, Steven is beastly!
Coming out of his shower, 48 hours after the removal of a tumor in his cerebellum, Steven is balanced and strong!
