The pain seems to be a little more intense than when they put the rod in the hip but, all in all, Tanner has been in good spirits since we made it to his hospital room. I can vouch for the fact that his appetite hasn't been effected at all. He had part of a turkey sandwich, half of a club panini, roast, broccoli, potatoes, and spice cake between the time he made it to his room around 4 p.m. yesterday and bedtime last night!
The nurse practitioner came by this morning and has already written orders that he can go home today as soon as physical therapy comes by and gets him out of bed to walk. She said he can put as much weight on the leg as he can bear and that he doesn't have to wear the leg brace anymore! He has an internal brace now!!
