Good Weekend

We had a quiet weekend at home, trying to keep Liam to quiet activity. He stopped taking Tylenol... he is SO stubborn! He says the incision site hurts sometimes, but only if we ask. 

Liam was back to himself all weekend. It seems crazy that he could feel so good right after surgery. It makes me wonder about how much of his life (before diagnosis, during chemo & radiation) he has spent with pain, to take pain with such stride like he does.

We weren't sure, but Liam wants to go to school tomorrow. Liam really misses his friends, he's excited to see them and his teachers.

We had to wait to wash Liam's hair to give the stitches time to heal. We were able to tonight. After washing, Liam asked to comb his hair to cover his stitches. He is self conscious of his scars, he already wants to keep his hair longer. In Kindergarten, a classmate saw his scar and told him to go to the hospital to get it fixed. Liam takes the little things to heart.

Liam has dissolvable stitches, so he doesn't have to go see the doctor right away. We follow up with the surgeon in a month.

Amazing how quickly they heal. What a special boy you have but I could be prejudice.

Love Papa
