I haven't updated for the last few days because there really isn't anything to tell which is a good thing. I have just been laying low on bed rest. Bed rest is something I thought would be relaxing but I can definitely report it is not. You get so uncomfortable and I can only lay on my back which gets to be a pain. Although I can't complain because I completely understand why the bed rest is needed. Anything I have to do to keep Andrew in there I will gladly do. Luckily I had friends and family that came to visit to keep me company. Of course my poor husband is here 24/7 to also keep me company but it is nice for him to have other people here to take care of me to get a break. He has been a saint. This is definitely a team thing we have to do. I don't know who has the shorter end of the stick.
Today was actually an exciting day. I got to leave the hotel to go to the hospital for my first post-op doctor appointment. I'm happy to report everything looks really good. Andrew's back is healing nicely, he is kicking his legs around and still has no fluid on his brain. Seeing him look so good makes everything so worth it.
I hope all the mothers out there had a great Mother's Day!
