Ok so today i got back on solid foods, but im taking it easy no pizza or steak just yet lol. My dad and I have been talking to the perosn who says what i should eat, sh said for a few weeks eat really liquids and super soft foods. Cough Cough maybe 2 weeks, but my doctors want to see how i do with more solid foods because they are going to release me sometime tmrw *IF i keep everything down and keep drinking a bottle of water atleast every 1-2 hours.
They stopped the IV buts its still in incase i need pain meds etc.. Umm i got a picture taken with Santa?.. Lol since im in a Ward for ppl under 18 they had someone dress up as santa which was really nice, I dont care how old you are if you got surgerys done and its been boring something like that can make your day alot better. "Santa" gave everyone a stuffed bear or dog "really nice ones it still had the price tag on it and said 20 bucks" and also gave everyone a 20 dollar gift card plus candy canes :P
I thought that was something cool to brighten everyones day. Other than that its really quite asides from some kids roaming the halls in toy cars or planes "kinda cute lol".
Umm since its a military base sometimes high ranked Gens. get admitted. Well this time one came and asked for a Big flat screen with a bulit in dvd player, I would never do that. After they told him it was for the kids ward he kept trying to get it, wanted to switch it out until he leaves. Well just because your a Gen. doesnt mean you get away and with everything you want lol.
I thought that it was good the Nurses stool their ground and made it clear to him. Now thats from everything nurses and ppl told me but if thats how it went then thats how i thought, any changes would change my thought probly.

I love the Santa thing. Dillon had a clown come into the just have to laugh if off and you did.

Glad you are feeling better and will be home soon. Not that I want to be too personal, but we are on this site for a are the BMs going? Hopefully they have started to slow down since you are beginning to eat real food.
