|He's kinda liking the later start to things.
We got here and hung out for quite a while. I was right. By the time they got to the afternoon cases they were running a little behind. Then he decided that he wasn't real interested in an IV, so that took a while too, before they could get underway. The fact that they had already put him out before attemting the IV didn't seem to matter to him. He just wasn't into the "sharing" aspect of things.

do the right ear.
He's done really well from a pain standpoint. He did decide once again to bleed more than expected so we've avoiding the ibuprofen route. He does have a narcotic written if he needs it, but so far Tylenol seems to be doing the trick.
However, he does want to keep us on our toes. He's currently asleep (I guess everyone deserves to sleep in the day after surgery) and using about seven liters of oxygen. When he's awake, it's more like ten. Yep, can't go home on that. Our concentrator only dials to ten, and in reality, the output is closer to nine.
But at least he doesn't seem to be in pain. That is huge.
