Post-op update

In the recovery room with his
signature "antenna."  The only
sure place to put his IV is in
his scalp.
We’re in a room now and Aaron seems to be resting peacefully at the moment.  Hopefully it will last for more than a moment.  We decided that we’d stay as a precautionary measure.  He’s pulled some funny stuff before following surgery and I really don’t want to do that at home.  He’s still a bit high on his oxygen and his heart rate just doesn’t want to come down where it belongs.  That may just be the pain talking.  I hope so.  His sound asleep heart rate is more like his awake-and-playing heart rate usually is.  And when he gets upset, well, let’s just say it’s too fast.  Not call-cardiology-right-now fast, but faster than we’re super comfortable with.  But with pain meds on board and food in the tummy, maybe he’ll have a decent night.  The plan is for a quiet, boring night and discharge in the morning.  We’ll have to wait to see if Aaron has read the same script…
