Well, he peed a little. Still not a lot, but enough that they didn't have to give him a catheter.
He's still NPO. They just drew his morning labs. (A BMP and a CBC) After the results of the labs come back, we'll go from there.
Right now, best case scenario is that we get moved out of the PICU onto the peds floor. That would be a great improvement for ME as it means bathrooms and a couch. (And closer access to the Icee machine.)
The good news of the day is that his pain level is much more manageable. He got morphine every 2 hours throughout the night but they did skip his last dose and he's doing okay. I believe they're going to try to switch to Tylenol 3 as needed.
The surgeon said that he removed some adhesions during the surgery (scar tissue from his first surgery) that may be causing a lot of this. While I appreciate the explanation, that infuriates me a bit.
I specifically asked the GI doc about that and she said he was "too young" for adhesions. She should be rounding on him this afternoon. I believe we're going to have words.
Anyway, thanks for the continued thoughts and prayers. We still need them but I will say that having him no longer writhing in pain is a VAST improvement. Now we just needs his gut to work.
