Sunday was a difficult day, but today was better. Jimmie lost a couple more of the tubes protruding from his body (one by accident when the stomach pump tube fell out on its own . . . hope he won't need it again.) The doctor changed the pain control medication to something stronger (I had no idea there was something stronger than morphine, but it seems there is) so Jimmie suffered a bit less. And Jimmie was allowed up to walk just a bit. All positive moves forward.
On the negative side, Jimmie's digestive system is still sleeping so he is not yet allowed anything by mouth, not even a sip of water since the surgery.
