Default The Doctor's office just called

and asked if Brian would like to have his JP drain out tomorrow instead of Monday. Well YEAH!

He's losing very little fluid so it makes sense.

Hubby is up... walking a bit, drinking less than I would like
taking his vitamins and prevacid
and online.

it was a pretty restful night for him

Keep pumping him full of fluids! I got dehydrated a few weeks after my surgery, and it really sucked - racing heart, aversion to food/drink, nausea...avoid it at all costs!

Water is the most important thing to accomplish just after surgery, forget all the other crap. You don't want dehydration.

he's drinking as far as I know.... he's a man and he's stubborn. I can give him the drinks. I can remind him to drink. I cannot pour it down his throat.
