Thank You...and update!

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers for my son! He came through surgery just fine, however he is in such pain he can barely stand it. The pain killers do not work for him at all. I sure wish I could take his pain away. Nurses and docs were in to see him about every 20 min. today. He has had no sleep whatsoever.
I have to give him a lot of credit. He did get out of bed and into a chair this afternoon and later went for a short walk. Tonight before getting in bed, he wants to do another walk. He just grits his teeth and does it. He knows he has to get moving before they will allow him to go home.
On top of everything else, he has been complaining about his L ear hurting. No doc had looked at it, so you bet I put things in motion! He has a horrible ear infection. Doc asked him what meds he wanted. I must say he does have a perk in being in the medical field. He can discuss his condition with docs and nurses and get specific details that I don't begin to understand!
Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers. He has a long road ahead, but I know each day will bring improvement. Thanks!
