Brave Little Sprout Recovers

Will is in very good spirits considering what he has been through. He is eating very well today and sleeping quite a bit. He is still in some discomfort when I move him, so basically I try not to.

Here you can see the actual site. It is covered in Steri-strips which keep a wound together as it heals. He has no external stitches, so that makes it nice. The faint line you can see around it is a guide to see if the redness around the area grows. That way I can keep track of a possible infection. It is slightly red now, it was much worse this morning.
He is still quite distended, and you can see that the right side is puffier than the left. The surgeon said this was normal, as he had to dig around quite and bit and there is a lot of soft tissue trauma. It should go away soon. His arms and legs look so skinny compared to that bloated belly.

What a trooper! I'm so glad everything went ok. I can't imagine going through that. I will pray for a continued, quick recovery with no complications. Can't wait to see you guys (only 7 1/2 weeks!)
