A blog dedicated to our son Jack and the human spirit
Monday, June 7, 2010
Jack moved into a regular room about 2 hours ago. He had his drainage tube in his head removed finally. He no longer has to have the huge wrap on his head which has been bothering him ever since the surgery on Wednesday. Both doctors feel that he progressing very well from a medical standpoint. Jack is still pretty lethargic after complaining quite vocally for several days about his head hurting. He is now very quiet and hasn't eaten all day. He is getting fluids through IV though. Dr. Grant feels that the likely cause of this behavior is steroid withdrawal. The steroids were vital to reducing inflammation from surgery and are now being tapered off. He may want to taper them more slowly to reduce the withdrawals. Hopefully, Jack will feel better tomorrow.
