Day Five - Post-Surgery

Day 5, Aleks has finally consented to a bath, so the glue from the electrode adhesive pads finally got removed. His hair should smell better too. I don't think the sponge bath really did the trick before. The bath also helped warm up his muscles a bit, so when he got out, he was far less stiff than he'd been. He still moves like an old man. He only requests pain medication when he wakes up and when he goes to bed. He's not quite sick of his diet yet, but I have a feeling that's coming. He managed macaroni and cheese, so there may be a lot of pasta in our future. I think maybe he doesn't eat enough anyway. He's so skinny...
In the late afternoon, Aleks and his dad went out for a "shopping spree" as his great aunt and great grandmother had sent large sums of money with the instruction to spend it. He also picked me out a new bath mat while he was out. Kid done good.
