We were hoping to get a good night sleep after the surgery, but Carter was nauseated most of the night and I ended up
The transfusion went well and Carter has been getting better ever since. Both of us were able to get some much needed sleep last night. My cousin, bless her heart, sat with Carter during the transfusion which lasted from 10:00 P.M. until 2:30 in the morning. Carter was asleep but I felt better knowing someone was keeping an eye on him. I knew he was getting better when he asked to watch Sponge Bob. I was so happy-and that is saying a lot because I strongly dislike that show! He has started to eat a little bit and his color is looking better. He was also able to get out of bed today and sit in the wheelchair for an hour. It wasn't the most pleasant hour but he did it. They gave him a "first time out of bed" certificate but he thinks he is too old for stuff like that! He is such a cute, strong boy and I am very proud of him.
We are anticipating a Monday discharge from the hospital. From there we will be transported to the Residence Inn. The clinic will provide daily transportation to physical therapy. If Carter is doing well we will try to get together with Aunt Cindy's family next weekend. We fly home on September 5th...yeah!
Carter loves hearing the comments so I will continue to read them to him. Feel free to send him a message, I know he will enjoy it. Carter and I send our thanks for your love, support and prayers.
