Update on Logan

Good news this evening. Logan is recovering well. He is still in a lot of pain and it is apparent that it is hard for him to get comfortable, but he was more alert today and even seemed happy a couple of times when he saw Mom and Dad. When the doctor made rounds this morning, she was very impressed with Logan's progress and said he could leave the PICU. We had to wait until this afternoon for a bed to open up, but he is in a regular room now. Besides allowing more space and privacy it is a lot more quiet and easier for Logan to relax. He still isn't allowed to eat or drink, so his mouth and tongue look really dry and sore. They use a sponge with a type of mouthwash on it to clean and moisten, but he really would like something to eat. Hopefully by tomorrow or Sunday his intestines will be working again and he can eat. I've already promised him a Quad-Cheese Ben Burger and a large shake from Burger Bar.
