Finally Eating Solid Food

We got the orders released around 2:00 & immediately ordered Caleb a cheeseburger with mac & cheese.  By the time it came up, Caleb was sound asleep. He woke up around 3:30pm & asked to eat. He wanted me to cut his cheeseburger into small pieces. By the time I got it cut, he was almost asleep again. I asked if he wanted to eat or sleep & he chose sleep! I can't blame him at all.

When he was down in recovery, we were telling the anesthesiologist how much Caleb likes "sleepy medicine." Caleb says, "I don't like this sleepy medicine. It makes me too sleepy."  That was because they had to use more pain medications than anesthesia because of the heart issue.  The morphine is what's making him so sleepy right now.

So... He just woke up again & is ready to eat. So far he's had 1/2 a cheeseburger, mac & cheese, 4 powdered donuts & some water.  He's ordered: chicken nuggets, tater tots, carrots, a banana, 2 bottles of water, brownies, sugar cookies & pop tarts for his next meal. It should be arriving any minute.  Looks like he's got his appetite back!


  1. Angela - keeping your family in my prayers, Caleb is such a trooper. May God be with you and your family at this time... Myra

  2. WOW! He definately has his appetite back. I pray for a peaceful and restful nights sleep for you all.
