Mom here - John didn't get much rest last night as they are waking him up every hour to check the blood flow in the flap with a Doppler. It is very noisy but only takes a minute or so, but enough to wake him up. They are going to every two hours on Saturday so that should give him a bit more time to rest. His pain continues in the area of bone harvest, but they have hooked up a button by his toe and he can get his pain meds on demand. Also put a pad by his right shoulder and he can call for a nurse by tapping it. Sure makes it a lot easier for Bernie and I to leave him for a few hours during the day and at night. Still is on liquid diet, but hopes for some "real food" on Saturday. All in all life is good. Keep the good thoughts and prayers coming his way.
