|"Yes" this is the right leg, doc!|
When he was coming out of the anesthesia, he was very cold and shivering a lot. They were able to give him something that helped with the shivering and then he worked his way in and out of sleep.

The pain medication didn't make him sleep like we thought it would. He has actually been awake since we left the surgery center. Even the anti-nausea medicine didn't put him to sleep. We will give him another dose before he goes to bed and hopefully he will sleep well tonight.
Daniel was concerned about Matt and was relieved to hear he did so well. He even offered to help Matt move from the bedroom to the living room. These are the rare glimpses that show us that he really does love his brother! :-)
Sarah came in the door after Brian picked her up from day care and the first thing she wanted to do was go outside and pick 5 flowers for Matthew and give them to him very carefully so not to hurt his leg. She was very specific about the number and not hurting his leg.

We will go back to the doctor next Friday and we will see how he is healing and what the plan will be. Matt, of course, is determined to be back at it sooner than later. If anyone can do it, he can.
Living thru faith,
