DAY 11 (POST OP).
So yesterday Cole did awesome...he didn't cry once....he was so good and so happy...even with us taking him on an 8 hour plane trip. Today is another story...I don't get how he can have such a good day and the next day he is a complete wreck. He has cried since he woke up at 6am this morning. Ashley, Terri, David or Kristen (the parents of a child that had brain surgery) please give me some advice!!! I know I would be acting like Cole also, if I just had brain sugary...but all the drs and people who experienced this said children bounce back really fast. When we were in the hospital, 2 kids had brain surgery 1 week AFTER Cole did...they were in the hospital for 3 days (both got released before Cole). I was ready for the surgery...but was NOT ready for the after math that the surgery would bring. I really thought he would recover well...the drs thought he would to...and boy we were ALL surprised. Uhhh, I just want to cry as much as Cole is crying. Don't get me wrong, I am really pleased with the results of the surgery and extremely glad the Cole had this opportunity but I can't help my emotions of watching Cole suffer for so long! It seems like we finally get a break and the next day is awful.
