Kinger was discharged Wednesday, the day after surgery. They were able to modify his own wheelchair with a foam covered board to rest his legs on. His casts make it difficult for him to sit back all the way in his chair, so he ends up being slightly reclined all on his own, like they wanted him to be. Huge relief.
He also fit in his own carseat! All of these things I was worried about and so far both are just fine.
And, he can (just barely) fit in his stander!
As for how he is doing, he is amazing. They gave him Tylenol and Advil in the hospital, but I haven't given him anything since we got home. He hasn't shown a moment of discomfort or complaint. He was tired the first two days, going to bed early and sleeping solidly, but that's it. He can commando crawl, dragging those beastly things along behind him and he can even roll himself over both ways still, it's quite amazing to watch. He's also figured out how to sit on his own. I realize these things seem like mundane feats for a 3.5 year-old, but considering he cannot feel anything from about his waist down, he has to work out balancing without feeling what he's balancing on and now his two biggest props (his legs) are bound in a completely different position than he's used to. So... amazing, yep.
Tomorrow, he has these casts removed and new ones put on. I'm not sure if he'll be wearing these zimmer splints the whole recovery or not. Right now, he kind of reminds me of a hockey goalie. How very Canadian ;)
