Hair Cut

Today Evan felt well enough to go get his hair cut, he even drove the car for the first time since his surgery. It is good to see him doing more and more everyday but at the same time he needs to be careful not to do too much. His little trip to get his hair cut took a lot out of him so it was back home for a nap. The doctor said that his body is burning calories as if he were running a marathon everyday because everything is concentrating on healing. This morning he weighed in and found that he has lost 20 lbs so far.

Tomorrow we will get to go on a little adventure. It is my families reunion up in East Canyon and we have decided to just go up for a little while on Saturday. It will be nice to get out of the house for a little while. We will take up our nice little lounge chairs so that Evan will have a place to rest and take his naps when he needs them. We look forward to visiting and being up in the mountains.

He still has to get hooked up to his TPN daily for his nutrition which means he still can't eat anything yet. We will talk to the doctor again on Monday to report in and see if he feel like Evan has made enough progress to allow him to start eating a little bit. He will have to remain on the TPN for a few days after he starts eating just to make sure he is getting the nutrition his body needs.

Well, I guess that's all for now.

Evan & Julie
