Progress!

Chris is doing so great. He hasn't taken any of his Vicodin in 2 days. He's able to get himself into and out of bed, and today he even put on his own shoes and socks! We went to the farmer's market to get him out of the house for a little bit and he did great getting into and out of the car. He even took the steps upstairs with one foot on each, instead of doing it with both feet on each step like a little kid. He's using his walker just as a backup, just in case he loses his balance or needs something to lean on.

The incisions are healing well. He's able to shower by himself. His mom rigged up a contraption using yarn and a hanger so he can pull the thing to make the water go from the faucet to the shower head. It's pretty impressive.

It's been great having his mom's help. And the yummy food she brings and cooks ain't so bad either! :-)

Can I have the vicodin he isn't using? Just kidding. No really.

Oh I am so happy he already up and about just make sure he doesn't overdo it. You know how these boys can be when they are being all "manly". :)
