Every day Mason is making great steps forward:
-His chest tubes are out
-His IV medications have all been switched to oral medications
-He has been taken off all narcotics
-His head aches and pain are controlled
-His swelling has gone done
-He is much more alert

But he is still struggling with the one thing he used to love to do before surgery... EATING!
He has not yet re-gained his appetite. He is just not interested.
This is the last hurdle we will need to overcome before going home. He needs to be able to take in food and have appropriate bowel movements. Defiantly not something I thought that he would ever struggle with.

Greg and I are both looking forward to seeing Mason smile again for the first time after surgery... We try hard every day but he is just to grumpy at the moment to think we are funny!

This is how we are spending our days counting the ounces in and the ounces out hoping that they balance and we get the okay to break out of here!!!

Thanks for all the love and support-

Greg, Kelsey and Mason
