Davin ended up having respiratory complications following his surgery and we ended up spending 13 days in the hospital. He has some good days and some bad days. Today was somewhere in the middle. He has only slept through the night one night so far. It has been a long couple of weeks. Our new normal for right now includes, a hospital bed, oxygen, a feeding tube, a puls-ox, and breathing treatments. Also at night he wears a c-pap which helps expand his lungs. I think of it as being in between oxygen and a respirator. It has been very difficult getting used to this new normal. Davin is furious that he can not eat right now. "Regular Davin" eats regular food, has never had oxygen or any of these other things. He is not loving it and is a bit annoyed with his cast. His cast comes all the way down his left side and half way down his right leg.
On the up side, I am so thankful for a successful surgery. I am thankful that Davin was in a children's hospital where they are so skilled dealing with all kinds of problems in children. I am thankful for equipment to take home so we could finally leave the hospital!
I think the hardest thing of all has been to watch Davin be so miserable. He did not smile for five and a half days and that has never happened before in his life. Davin is the happiest person I have ever known in my life. The doctors and nurses were trying to understand what Davin is like in his normal life so we would know where we were trying to get him back to and it was so hard to make them understand that this sick, sad little boy was nothing like my Davin. Poor thing. What a trial for a little boy.
God is good and He is faithful. I will keep you posted on how he is doing. Thank you all for your prayers.
