He had pedialyte through his G-tube for a few hours and everything went in fine. He also got his first meal. He ate half a taco on his own, which is pretty good.
He is still taking the old enzymes, Pancrecarb for now. They might be starting the new enzymes tomorrow. They need make sure he is tolerating the enzymes and not vomiting with them before they send him home. So please pray that they can figure his enzymes out.
Here is a picture of his Mic-key button.
There is gauze on the side of it to make sure it doesn't rotate. The gauze can come off in a week. There is no bleeding or leaking so far.
The other white strip on the lower area is over his belly button. It is like a really strong bandaid, replacing the need for stitches. That was where they inserted the camera.
As you can see in the video ... he's doing really well for just having surgery yesterday. :)
bed, so we carried him to the toilet. He seemed to be in a lot of
pain, but he walked back to bed by himself.
Last night was a little rough. He cried off and on through the night.
He is on pain meds, but not morphin. He was able to slowly get out
of bed this morning so we could get him cleaned up. He is very mucusy
today. It hurts him to cough, but a lot is coming up. Hopefully he can
get a breathing treatment soon. He's going to be off the vest for a
while, so it's CPT for a while.
