Less than 10 days after his surgery, Brady announced "HE POOPED! This is major for him because of surgery, the morphine he's been in and not to mention he hasn't really pooped on his own for the past 2+ weeks! Mom has never been so happy to see poop! Because he pooped they are going to start feeding him again. It will be small at first but it's a start. SO PROUD of our baby boy!!"
