We encourage walking and sitting in a chair. PT/OT will continue.
When your child gets his/her Miralax drink from the nurse, your child should drink the full cup within 20-30 minutes for the medicine to work the best. He/she should continue to eat small snacks/meals throughout the day. His/her appetite will not be the same while he/she are on the pain medicine.
Transition to oral pain medicine may begin today. Time pain medicine around your child's therapy schedule.
The drain tube may come out today and the bandage may be changed (if not today then it will happen tomorrow.)
