Day 4 - Going home.

 

With Tim (dad) and Julia in the comfy room. This was the first time Tim saw him. They were both happy.

Day 10

Realized I had staples, so I thought I would try to remove them myself... Mom said, no you don't and that is why I look like James Dean in my t-shirt.

Day 2

Eating his dinner

He's looking greyt. Please give him lots of hugs for me

 

What was that line and little ball hanging from his collar? I wondered if he was getting blood (or something else) or if the line was to capture something coming out (like a drainage tube). I've never seen anything like that before.

Its a JP Drain to help drain excess fluid. It helps to minimize swelling.

Funny you ask that. When I saw Carrier for the first time, they explained everything to me that was attached to him (and there was so much, as you can see) and what it was for. Dr Couto called it an "argentinian prosthetic". He's from Argentina :lol. He said, "It's all we could afford" :lol Too funny... we were laughing a lot - it helped to stay positive :colgate

But, yes it's a drainage tube and the little plastic ball is where the fluid goes.
