Day 20 - Scar

I ended up staying at the hospital late again tonight.  The PICU gets so peaceful at night and very calming.  Trey slept most of the day today and the nurse explained it is most likely from the morphine and methadone.  She explained that he was awake the other day because it most likely hadn't caught up with him quite yet... yesterday and today it had and that is why he has been pretty sleepy.  So, not a bad thing that he's quite drowsy.

My brother came up to visit today.  Trey had been wearing his gown all day so I moved it out of the way to show him the incision spot.  Apparently they removed the steri-strips from the incision site.  It's healed very nicely.  It's amazing how good it looks!

 Trey and his "war wound"... 
he's really been trying to get that nasal cannula and feeding tube out of his nose!
