Gillian's Visit at the Hospital

First we played Disney Scene It was a lot of fun.
Then we watched National Treasure 2 - we didn't watch the whole thing. It was too long before bedtime. I was glad she came up and spent the night with me.
I am doing this entry, Mom isn't.
And now I have 19 pounds on my head. It feels ok.

Wow, Ammon, we have been reading your blog. I can't believe that you have 19 pounds on your head. You are doing awesome and your blog is great! Say hi to your Mom.

Hey Ammon! You look so happy and tall in your pictures. Mom said you can use your hands a lot better now. Maybe you should always have weights on your head... ;) We love you.

He had a tough day today. We are watching him carefully because there seems to be quite a bit of discomfort when they move him now from the bed to the wheelchair. He keeps saying his neck hurts. Perhaps they will have to back off on the weights, but neurologically he seems ok.
He was extremely emotional today which is very unusual. He cried a lot and it made me sad to leave him. I will be going back up tomorrow morning until Monday.
I know that he is very, very homesick. He longs to be home - so do we. We miss him at home - it's so weird to walk past his bedroom and not see him in there.
He is more than half-way through now. Two weeks from tomorrow and then the final surgery! Ten days to two weeks at PCMC and we're home. One more month. We're almost there.
