Quick recovery

August 20, 2010 · 5 comments

Wow, I know that kids are resilient, but oh my, is this kid of mine amazing!!

Last night, he couldn’t get up off of the couch or back on the couch after going to the bathroom and he was walking on his tip-toes to get around while using the death grip on our hands.

By the end of today? He’s standing, sitting, kneeling down for things, getting on and off the couch on his own and playing with the neighbors!! It’s obvious he’s still in pain, and I fully expect that, but the turn around from yesterday to today has been fabulous!

Of course, I’m totally worried about him overdoing it, especially since there’s just a tiny little steri-strip over his incision.

I’m thrilled that he’s doing so well.  I’m a little concerned that I’ll need to stay home on Monday since he has trouble leaning over to pull up his shorts, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

In the meantime, I’m relieved my baby is smiling and laughing again.

I’m so glad to hear it! Here’s hoping the pain will be gone entirely sooner than you expect, too.

Great news, talk about bouncing back!

I don’t envy you trying to keep him resting.
