3 days postop. Carter seems to be in better spirits today. He slept well during the night and seems to be more comfortable today. The doctors haven't rounded yet this morning. The ICU is packed so it could be awhile until the docs make it to our room. They did try to wean Carter off his oxygen but his oxygen levels kept dipping so he's back on a very very small amount of oxygen. Platelets haven't recovered from surgery. They are still low at 49. The other concern is his chest tubes. They have been draining a lit of blood over the last 24 hours which isn't a problem just means he is still bleeding inside and not clotting. It's not a problem because eventually he will. But they might have to put medication in through the chest tubes. We will learn more when the doctors round. I will keep u all updated. Thank you!!!
