And Gage is doing awesome. Really, way more awesome than I could have expected. He is acting like he never had surgery. He never complains of being sore, and he is doing all the things he did before surgery. We even went to Jump Zone Saturday. I didn't let him go down the big slide, but he did fine otherwise. The only complaint is that his incision is a little itchy. No biggy.
Last week, we thought he was having some referred pain in his tummy. He would suddenly clutch his stomach and complain that it hurt. It sounded like cramps. We eventually figured out that it was the Motrin. Since we quit the Motrin, he hasn't complained at all.
I have yet to decide if he has regained anything. Sometimes he'll do something and I'll think "ooh, I don't think he could do that before." Then, he'll be clumsy and I think he's holding on while he walks as much or more than before. I am reserving judgment until his PT tells me what to think ;).
Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts for him. He's an amazing kid!
