He already has his breathing tube out and we are waiting to see him in recovery. He has a couple of methods for pain control. The first is a PCA, which will deliver pain medication when he hits a button. He also has a pump that is delivering constant numbing medication into his abdomen at the incision site.
Many people have asked how to contact Courtney here and where to send cards. The address here is as follows...
To: Courtney Hanson (patient)
1515 Holcombe Blvd.
Houston, Texas 77030-4009
They will deliver these to him. As soon as we have a room number I will send it out. They have said he may go to a regular room today since he did so well. We will find out after he is more awake.
Thank you all for your prayers and comments!
