An update

Malachi continues to do well. He is slowly getting back to normal and we are seeing more and more smiles. I still can't believe that he was discharged after only 3 days!! He is on tough little man! The last few days have been very hot here in Boston so we have spent most of our days relaxing in our hotel room and swimming in the pool. 
Eli is liking the water more and more. He has enjoyed spending so much time with his Grandma too. We have been so thankful she is here to help. 
Another one of my little peanut. We need to work on the looking at the camera business.

We took Malachi's bandages off a few days ago. It was the first time we got to see the incisions. It was difficult to see them for the first time. 

 This was the side the Dr. Scott did and the side that Malachi had his stroke on. Don't mine the tape residue that he refuses to let us clean off.
This is Dr. Smiths side. Whoever shaved his head must have been a new at it because they nicked him a bunch. Each incision is about 4-5 inches long and he has about 30-50 stitches in each side. Yikes. Im guess  they will be pretty nasty scars! 

They both appear to be healing nicely. We will go back in to see Dr. Scott before we leave so he can check on them and also check he neurological function. We have seen a few periods of memory loss which could be a few small TIA's. His memory seems to come back after a few hours. We continue to pray that he will have no further strokes!!!
