Skyler is sleeping well in the ICU, he stirred a little about 30 minutes ago and then fell right back asleep. That is good, it is what he needs. He will remain on the ventilator tonight into tomorrow until we see how much fluid settles in the lungs. He had quite a bit of fluids and blood transfused during the surgery, so that is a bit of a worry.
Overall, we are very happy with where things are, better than we expected with the spine, and recovery is a bit slower than we expected. But it's all good.
