We went for his post-op check-up yesterday, and everything is fine. His hearing in the right ear is borderline, but the audiologist said it will inprove in the next few years. The surgeon was surprised that he was off of his pain meds so quick, but he HATED the taste of them.
I wish I had taken the camera to the hospital with me. His poor little arm was full of puncture marks where they had tried to put in IVs (must have his mother's veins!). And right after surgery, he was holding his dad's hand through the bars on the bed. It was so sad/sweet. He lost 3.5 lbs through this experience, and he only weighed 43 lbs to begin with. Last Friday, he started eating again, and I don't think he has stopped eating since. Still not eating meat, but his big sister didn't eat meat for over a year when she was this age. I have cooked vegetarian before, I can do it again.
Sorry for no picture today... Probably some tomorrow. The little guy had the camera last week, so I have kitten pictures, and a really nice picture of his big sister to share.
