The surgery went great!
Dr. Dobbs said Cliff should have excellent results and he was easily able to perform the surgery!
Ross and I were finally called back to see Cliff in recovery.
He was crying and the nurse said the dreaded words…
She maxed him out on Morphine, Valium, Oxycodone, Fentanyl and Toradol then…
we took a little stroll upstairs.
Cliff was still having muscle spasms,
so pain control was called and his doctors increased his dosage of Valium.
He took it orally at about 1:00pm and it worked wonderful!
Here are his little legs with the bandages!
He is trying to move his legs, but he is sore and he cries.
Which causes Ross and I to go into a frenzy of trying to figure out what will calm Cliff down. Seriously, it looks like a circus act and I am pretty sure if someone walked in on us in one of these “we will do anything to calm Cliff down moments” they would fall on the floor laughing at us.
Cliff is eating and drinking!
He even cracked a smile!
(can we say super doped up?!)
What I am about to tell you next in SUPER crazy and was not on our agenda…
We are actually taking Cliff back to the hotel NOW!
He is doing so great that the doctor told us we could go ahead and get some good sleep tonight!
(The hotel is connected to the hospital should anything happen…heaven forbid!)
He will have PT tomorrow at 1:00pm!
Thank you all for your prayers and support!
God is soooooo good and we are so thankful!
