Recovery Day 3
Today has been the best day yet. Silas ate some of his breakfast. I got to hold him for 2 hours in the morning. He actually cried a lot when they moved him from the bed to me. The nurse said that was because he hadn't been moved all night. Poor baby. After the two hours, they moved him back to the bed and a cardiologist came in to remove the chest tube. This was not pleasant whatsoever. However, Silas is more comfortable moving around now. I ordered him some lunch, which he ate most of and it included a cookie!

"Okay, Mama, take the picture."
One of the night nurses drew this on Silas' door. So cute.
Staying at the Ronald McDonald House has been so nice. This hamburger was SO delicious. Yum.
We tried to have Silas walk again, but he whined and cried and motioned for me to pick him up. He got a suppository just before I left his room for the night. He hasn't had a BM since the surgery. He ate a little dinner and we skyped with our family back home. Silas asked to talk on the phone with his daddy and his face just lit up when he heard his voice. So cute. Tonight was the first time that Silas understood that I was leaving his room and he reached out for me to take him with me. Broke. My. Heart. Being a mama can be so tough. :*(
