October 1st, 2009 Right CI - Day 2

Carver slept most of yesterday and all night. He whimpered around 5:00am, so we got up and gave him some Tylenol. He went back to sleep until 8:00am. He took a nice long nap today and seems to be feeling pretty good. The bandages were removed today. He has quite a bit of swelling. There is quite a bump above his ear. It's hard to see in the picture, but it sticks out pretty good. I think there's a bit of blood pooled under the skin. His head was shaped a little odd when the bandages were removed (due to swelling), but is slowly looking a little more round. No fever this time, which is nice.

The scar to the left of the bandage is from a central line. I didn't even realize it was there until his head was shaved. I knew he had a central line behind the ear, but never realized how big the scar was until now.

I'm so glad it went ok and you are back home. I don't blame you for wanting to get away from the H1N1 Keep us posted. Carver is such a trooper! Can't wait for him to start getting to use his implant!!
