Dennis is one remarkable little boy. He continues to heal quickly, but has been running a low grade fever---- which is to be expected. His appetite is not as ferocious as it was the day of the surgery, but I guess I wouldn't feel like eating if my mouth was full of stitches either. Still he goes around the house as his normal self, but eventually tires out.
Here is Dennis winding down after a long day. The other kids had been gone up until this evening when John went and picked them up from a friend's house and Grandma and Grandpa brought the other kids home. One nice thing about this surgery, is that Dennis totally allows me to comfort him and just sit with him without him even thinking of getting down from my lap. It is such a nice feeling--- for the both of us.
Dennis will continue to have blood tinged drool for the next week or so----- so he wears a bib all the time.
