Ry update

Thanks for all your responses to the surgery posts, guys!

Ry's doing really well. He's on pain meds and the pain doesn't seem to bother him too much except during diaper changes. Diaper changes are still kind of a nightmare. It's been taking 2 people to change him - 1 to hold him down and try to distract him and the other to do the changing. DH went back to work today, so I'm going to have to do both, yikes.

The only other issues are that he wants to bounce up and down and straddle things, and he's not supposed to do either, and because of the scope of his airways, he sounds like he's in the beginning stages of an asthma attack. This totally freaks me out because I have asthma and it reminds me of having asthma attacks as a kid and how scary they were. It's bizarre, because it's a totally physical reaction for me. Logically, I know that he's fine, but my heart starts pounding and I get all shaky when the wheezing sound gets really bad. Obviously, I have some deep-seated issues, lol.

Anyway, he seems to be recovering pretty well. Thanks again for all the support!

Megan, I'm so glad to hear that Rylan's surgery went well. I just read the other thread and then saw your update so thought I'd comment here. It sounds like he's ready to jump back into normal activity! I suppose it's good that he has so much energy only a couple days after surgery, but bad because he needs to take it easy. The diaper changes sound challenging - hope it goes well without DH today. I'll be thinking of you and Ry!!

i'm so happy to hear he's doing so well! that wheezing would probably be scary for any mom, but for someone who's had asthma, it's got to be freaky. what the time frame on his recovery?

It's fantastic that he's doing so well! Hopefully you can manage OK while DH is at work. I can totally understand your freaking out at his wheezing noises! When one of my kids even has
