Kevin had yet another great day. He did sleep (his kind of sleep - not the normal kind) until almost 3pm, but since he woke up and stayed up, he has been in a great mood.
Sadly, he wouldn't allow the new aide to do anything for him, but we have a young man coming on Monday so we will see how well that works out.
Anyway, we had a nice dinner (which he sat through entirely!) and then we played a very competitive game of Skipbo. I am loving the fact that he has become quite a vindictive player. Beware Moe - he is more cutthroat than even I am, lol.
After dinner, we Skyped with everyone in Florida. I don't think I mentioned that my niece, Chrissy, is getting married tomorrow. It's heartbreaking to both Kevin and I that we aren't able to be there. Everyone is staying at the house and it's just so sad that we are missing such a large event in our family.
But, I must say that my parents look wonderful! I think they are lovin' having everyone around. Kevin got very upset when the kids were all going out for the night and he realized that he wasn't able to do it, but he rebounded after we hung up.
So directly after Skyping Kevin actually stayed in the living room and we watched "The Wizard of Oz" together. He has been out of his bed/room for hours now.
And - and get this - he did not take one dose of oxy today!!! He took Tylenol only 3 times too!
The doc mentioned yesterday that the expander may fool the brain into believing the plate is in. I thought about that the other day because with the skin taut like that it becomes hard. I didn't ask though so I'm glad the doc mentioned it. Wouldn't that be great if he was able to be up more and to not have so much pain?!
First 2 from the Nov kit!
