After awhile, they brought Blake back. He still had his IV in and was very groggy. He looked at me with glassy eyes while the nurse gave after care instructions. Apparently he remembered his ride in the bed to and from the OR, because he kept saying, "push me". He liked the nurse's purple gloves, so she gave him a pair to play with.
I gave him some apple juice to drink and they set about getting him discharged. Eric returned and we got Blake dressed. It was like getting a limp ragdoll dressed, since he was so out of it. After he was dressed, he sat on my lap and stated to wake up a little. Eric went for the van and we got Blake loaded into a wheelchair. He liked that, too. They warned us that he'd be tired and would probably sleep this afternoon, but they don't know Blake. There were no naps here. At least not by Blake. Eric and I took turns taking naps ourselves, though. He is doing well and has eaten mashed potatoes, a butter bread, and an oatmeal cream pie. And his balance is back to normal. No more walking around like a drunkard. Children's was great,and I would highly recommend Dr. Hensley to anyone with kids like mine!
