( I still love the black and whites. The above three are from this morning while he was still in the hospital.)
Shortly after I wrote my last entry, Tracey came to the hospital and relieved me. I came home and took a nap for a couple hours. She called me around 3:30 to let me know Colby was being discharged today. So I headed back to the hospital to pick them up.
Colby is doing very well. Much less cranky and very alert. I think he's still feeling a little off from the last couple days. But it's a night and day difference over last night. He's eating just about his normal amounts and times. Hopefully by tomorrow, everything will be back to normal.
The neurosurgeon said he'd call us on Monday to set up a post op visit. We need to keep Colby's two incision sites dry for a couple days. But apart from that, there's no extra care needed. Simply amazing what they can do these days.
In some ways, I feel relieved that he has a shunt. No more measuring his head or wondering if the hydrocephalus will come back. We will need to watch for certain things with his shunt now, but that's all "repairable".
And so closes yet another chapter in the journey of our son Colby.
