Harper Update

**I'm going to go ahead and apologize in advance for the probable choppy sentences and any misspellings. I'm e.x.h.a.u.s.t.e.d.

Harper's surgery went well. The surgery was initially scheduled for 2:45 pm, but they were able to get him in earlier. They started his surgery at 2 and finished an hour later. Last time, he had emergence delirium following the surgery, but this time around he woke up calmly. I had prepared myself for hysterical crying post-op (like last year's surgery), and I was simply amazed at how serene he was.

He stayed awake the entire ride home and was soo alert, which was unlike our previous experience. And the kid ate the entire ride home. He wasn't able to eat breakfast or lunch (and neither was I!) so after he fully woke up, he told me, "Mama, I'm really hungry."

When we got home, he immediately began walking. My instructions are to "try" and keep him from walking for the next 3 days, but thats going to be next to impossible. In addition to the aforementioned, I also have to "try" to keep his foot in the bandage for the next 3 days. Again...i.m.p.o.s.s.i.b.l.e.

Here are a few pictures from the day...most are poor quality as they were taken from my cell phone.

I've debated posting this video on here...but in the end, I realized only a few people would actually see it :) This is a video of Harp when his "loopy juice" (as the nurses called it) kicked in...(they gave it to him before they took him back so that he wouldn't cry for me). Anyways...the video's pretty short, and its just a sample and I mean sample of what Harp was like for a full 15 minutes!
