Jacob's recovery is starting off very slow. He was too sleepy and uncomfortable to move until around 9 pm last night. The nurse and I got him to stand and about and hour later TD got him to walk a few steps. He hasn't gotten up since and refuses to. They took him off the morphine last night and switched him to Percocets every four hours hoping to wake him up a bit. Due to his pain he has remained on the Percocet but was put back on a lower dose of morphine. The pain meds work for about two hours and then he is back at an 8 out of 10 pain level according to Jacob.
Last night was rough. This morning isn't starting off well, but hoping for a good afternoon.
All of Jacob's doctors have been in to check on him this morning. They have all told him he needs to get up and move around today. Praying for strength for J...
