After a good night, it was a day of ups and downs yesterday. They always say the day after surgery is the worst, and I think that was true for Nathan. Just really sore and not feeling too well, but leave it up to him after a hard day to still find the strength to agree to sit up, get out of bed and sit in a chair for a while. I think I was more scared than he was to try this little stunt! By the end of the day he was in good shape, and was able to get a really good nights sleep last night. Today he is going to move out of ICU and go upstairs to a regular room on the hospital floor. He will be having a lot of his accessories taken off today (lines, tubes, etc.) and will be ready to walk around by this afternoon...hip, hip, hurray!!!
