Day 1 at Home

Connie spent the day catching up with his siblings and grandparents he hasn't seen in a week and playing with the toys and games he missed while he was gone. He moves a tiny bit slower than normal and you can tell he's sort of gingerly walking around, but he seems to be almost himself otherwise. He's even a little sweeter. We know from the past that when his heart doesn't feel well he tends to be whinier and generally not as pleasant so we are happy to see that our loving, thoughtful, kind-hearted boy is back. He didn't take any oxycodone at all today or yesterday and all he had today was two doses of motrin and one of tylenol. He has learned how to swallow pills so he's very proud of that fact and seems to prefer that to all the liquid medication he's been forced to endure the past week. Hopefully next time we get his scripts refilled he can switch to pill form. He did take a huge nap (we ALL did, actually... it was so needed!) this afternoon and got a shower. He still has quite a bit of adhesive on his belly, but it hurts him when I rub it with the detatchol so we're leaving it be until he's not so tender. We are so happy to be home and grateful for all the prayers while we were gone. We know God heard them and answered them. Here's a video of him playing tonight on the XBox... simply AMAZING! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2ME9pBvRn4&feature=plcp
