He is doing overall pretty good, we still have him on back to back doses of tylenol and ibuprofen (but seriously if I had to have this surgery instead of Elliot, I know I would need the GOOD drugs and he seems well managed on just the over the counter stuff). He is still very very clingy, only wanting mommy and daddy and fussy a good part of the day and he spends a lot of time not knowing what he wants, up, down, crawling, sitting, so needless to say Byron and I are worn out and looking forward to my family arriving next week for the Holidays.
We did have an outing yesterday to the Orthotic place and Elliot was fitted for his helmet, which should arrive right before Christmas. When I have time I will scan the pre and post surgery scans because there is such a noticeable difference its insane. I am so so so pleased with everything, and if I would have known it would have gone this smoothly I maybe could have slept the last 2 months!
We are enjoying our endless pajama's days and we are so thankful Elliot is doing the unexpected once again.
