Day 1: Matthew had a rough day on the first full day after surgery. This day has been his worst (so far) and the poor little guy was weepy and stayed on the couch all day. We did manage to get him to take his Lortab for pain relief, but only with great effort. He would not eat or drink. When we gave him his antibiotic in the evening, he vomited.
Day 2: After having a miserable night, Matthew woke up and took his Lortab. Within an hour he was quite chipper. He drank and ate a Popsicle. By the afternoon, he was playing his new Skylander's video game.
Day 3: With Lortab every 4 hours to ease the pain, Matthew did wonderfully. He was up and about, playing with his new Lego set from Grandma L. He and Nolan enjoyed watching the movie Wreck It Ralph.
Day 4: Matthew is a little fussier than he has been for a couple of days. The back of his throat is white and scabbed, and I suspect his pain level has gone up a notch. He is drinking, though, so everything is fine. I made him butterscotch pudding and he ate nearly all of it.
