Surgery recovery

abe did fine in surgery. he is on a little more oxygen but the plan is to wean him back down to 0.1 liters.i am learning to do this on my phone so some letters might not be capitized. he tried to drink some milk from a bottle however he is in pain. You can see the tube from the shunt under his skin. also he had scatch marks on him in a pattern. I asked what happened apparently neurosurgery staples the surgical sheets to the patients. I am not sure how to hold him to burp him since he also has a abdominal incision. It breaks my heart to see him in pain. if he does well then he will go home thursday. however i am nervous for him to seat in his carseat. i dont want him to hurt. the pain medication seems to be working.
