J.J.'s off of codeine and a lot more like himself. He (reluctantly) stood up for a few minutes and took a few steps to the chair, sat in the chair for about and hour and then took some steps to get back to bed.
This evening he asked for pizza! So Grandpa ordered him some pizza and he sat up in the rocking chair with dad for another hour or so and ate 2 pieces of pizza!
He's looking good, still worn out and grumpy, but wearing glasses and watching Bearnstein Bears and telling us a bit more what he would like. In fact he had initially ordered a hot dog and pasta for after the pizza! He has even been making conversation a bit tonight, commenting on the shows he's watching.
It's encouraging to see J.J. doing better and getting some of his personality back! Although I have to say my back is killing me from wrestling him onto those bed pans!!
Jackie seems a little more settled too and more like himself. He had fun at the block party on our street yesterday and has been hanging out lots with Grandma and Grandpa. He asked to come in and see J.J. today and he hung out at the hospital for about 2 1/2 hrs.
J.J.'s incision is getting itchy and he keeps saying he wants to go home. Soon enough, little buddy, soon enough!
