We've been visiting with Derek, and he is still a little sleepy but doing well coming out of the anesthesia from the surgery. He is in his room with lots of tubes: catheter, chest tubes on either side, oxygen in his nose, oxygen monitor on his finger, and blood pressure cuff. Plus 2 IV sites that are not receiving anything right now. His pain is a ZERO right now (thankful for that!), and they will soon hook him up to a pain pump so he can run that when he does start to feel the pain. They are sure he will have some, but he's still under the surgery pain relief right now. Not eating/drinking yet until they release him to. Just wanted to give another update for the kids at Grandma Stoller's if nothing else. They are fine "doctors/nurses" and will want to know these details.
