Happy Friday
Yesterday they moved us out to the floor and he had a good night.  Today the pain seems to be peaking, but we are starting to ask more of him.  He was supposed to get PT yesterday and to sit up, but they never got around to it.  So this morning we sat him up ourselves and let him eat some breakfast.  He did well, but only lasted about 15 minutes.  They are encouraging us to take him for walks around the floor today and PT will be coming to see him.  They have come in with hefty pain meds and we hope they will take effect before they try to move again.  

When we had him on Daddy's shoulder to move him from the PICU yesterday I snapped a picture of his bandages:

And here is one of him eating this morning:

So things are going along as well as expected.  Hopefully the worst of the pain passes after today and we start the upswing tomorrow, but we are getting the occasional smile and we are headed in the right direction.
