This is a quick update to let everyone know that Graeme is doing suprisingly well. He continued eating well and we were discharged from the hospital at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday. I was shocked to say the least but that morning, he really was acting more like Graeme. We drove to Lexington and napped at my friend's condo. He was doing so well that we decided to come on home. We traveled the rest of the way home and there was only one time that he was really fussy. He needed another dose of pain medicine. He was so happy to be home as we all were. He has rested so much better just being here. All of the things that I worried about have been fine. He is eating well....I didn't really think this would be an issue. He wears his no-nos without fussing. I let Lily try one on and she lasted maybe three minutes. He is sleeping well....AMAZING! (He usually sleeps with half of his shirt shoved in his mouth but is now sleeping without this comfort and in no-nos)....this is a true answer to prayer! He is such a good sleeper and I really worried about this affecting his sleep but it has not. Now my sleep, I am up checking on him constantly so hopefully that will decrease soon! We are fading the strong pain medicine today and going to Tylenol. He really seems to be healing well considering all that they did to the little guy. I'll post pics later when I have a bit more time.

What a GREAT report! So happy to know that you are home, and that Graeme is eating AND sleeping well, that's huge!

Way to go Super Graeme, we're so proud of you!

Blessings from Texas~

(And Teddi, who could use some tips from Graeme when it comes to post-surgery sleeping! The eating part she's got down! Sleeping . . . not so much!)

By the way, our new favorite soft food is Betty Crocker mashed sweet potatos. They come in a small box w/ two individual (3 serving) pouches inside. I found them with the instant mashed potatos. Very quick and easy, just add extra milk and they are very smooth. Teddi loves them!
