We had to reduce the weights by two pounds. Ammon hasn't been tolerating them very well and the pin sites became excruiatingly painful to touch, which isn't normal. A nurse found a doctor today and talked to him. They decided to back down to 18 pounds again so we are back to that weight. Surprisingly, Ammon perked up quickly once the two pounds had been removed. He even wanted to go on a walk so we left the hospital grounds and went on a long walk. At one point, as we were coming down a hill, Ammon had to stop. He said he had "chair sickness." It was obvious that he wasn't feeling well and was really bothered by the extra weight for the past three days. We were having to give him pain medication for the first time and he was hating life. He seems to have found that little spark once again. Hopefully they will be content to leave him at 18 pounds. I guess we'll have to see.
