Staples out, steri strips on!
They took the staples out yesterday, though there are still a couple of raw spots. The surgeons said on paper he looks great, though they're still adjusting the anti-rejection meds. He's still in quite a bit of pain and the tremors are astonishing. Apparently, that happens with too much anti-rejection medicine, though he's on quite a low dose (The wallet is grateful).
He's lost a lot of weight he really didn't have to lose. With the major incision and no appetite, feeding him is a challenge. Sigh. But we're working on it. And he remains the loveliest of people. So thrilled that he's moved from "dying" to "recovering from major surgery."
One funny side effect of all this: He now babbles in his sleep. The tremors and the talking make for quite a night's sleep. Not.
Life is good.
