|Doesn't he look so sad|
|I took this picture when he was sleeping and he didn't know|
I went and sat with Declan while the anesthesia was wearing off and he was not a happy camper. He kept asking me how long the surgery took and was mad because they "chopped the hell out of his leg" and he really wanted to go home. There was a patient sharing a room with us but there was a curtain separating the room and his machine kept beeping and Declan was getting mad because of the beeping noises. He kept complaining that he couldn't feel his leg (because of the nerve block) and he was in pain. They finally gave him some pain medicine which helped. The nurse kept coming in and out checking on his vitals and finally Declan couldn't stand it anymore and asked if he could go home. The nurse gave us the discharge papers and told Declan that he could get dressed. When he was getting dressed he felt sick so he laid back down until the nurse brought the wheel chair. She wheeled him out to the car and we left the hospital at 4:30pm. I got him home with out him throwing up and had him lay on the couch and elevated his leg. The hospital sent us home with this ice machine that circulates the ice water through the brace on his knee to help with the swelling. He has been chilling on the couch and has been in and out of sleep because of the pain medicine. Bowzer has been sleeping with him on the couch at night to keep him company. Hopefully he will be able to get on his feet soon because the laying on the couch all day is killing him. Feel free to stop by and visit him so that he is not bored out of his mind while I am at work.
