Super Star on the Floor

Simon is recovering so well that they have referred to him as a rock star and a super star. This morning while the doctors were doing rounds they commented on him breaking records with his recovery. The nurses all comment about it too. They took him off his IV's. If he is able to eat and drink well today then they might let him go home tomorrow! That'd be awesome!

He is still hurting as one would expect from a having craniectomy. He can't turn his head without a lot of pain and he has a pretty constant headache. He is off the fentanyl and if he can take Tylenol (he took it again last night) and/or Oxycodone that is another key to being sent home.

What a relief that he's recovering so quickly!! Do they think the surgery corrected the problem? Hope his headache goes away quickly!!

Go super star simon! We're so glad to hear such good news from the rain drenched east coast... I'm thinking of you guys all the time, but I don't want to call and bug you.

We won't know if the problem is all fised for a few months. We'll go back in 6 months for a follow up MRI to see if the syrinx has shrunk.

You are welcome to call. I can step out in the hallway to take calls. Thanks for thinking of us!
