Hi everybody! I created this blog so that you all could cheer Rory on throughout his battle with DSRCT. I know all of you care so much about Rory and want to be updated on everything going on and so I thought a blog would be the best way to do it! Thank you for all your love and support.

Day 4

I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13

This verse is perfect for the day Rory had.  Around 1pm today, Rory was moved from the recovery floor to the obersation floor.  He has his own room and is still being monitored closely but I am now allowed to stay overnight with him.  I chose this verse to open this blog because today Rory walked!  The nurses and doctors really wanted Rory to sit up today and to walk a little and he did it!  Around 6ish he sat up at the end of his bed for quiet a while and then he decided he wanted to walk.  He went for about a 5 minute walk up and down the hall and he looked so strong!  He was so anxious about sitting up and walking because he feared the pain, but he did wonderful!  After he was done and back in bed, he told us all that it felt so good to walk and that he felt better having done so!  I'm sure he'll be worn out from his walk and will be able to sleep well tonight!  Or at least I hope so!  Another positive is that he is experience little to no pain.  Whenever the nurses ask him for his pain level on a scale of 1 -10 he says 1!   

Other than that the day has been pretty quiet and I'm ok with that :).  The more Rory walks the sooner his bowels/stomach will wake up and the sooner he'll get some tubes out!  It is so amazing though how great he looks.  Even though he's just been through a huge operation he already looks like the pre-tumor Rory. 

Keep praying that Rory continues to progress on a daily basis.  He's doing so well and you can tell he's fighting and trying to do his best so he can get out of here!  All the nurses seem to love him (can you blame them?) and think he's the perfect patient!
