We’re definitely on the upswing. Yesterday he was chatty and all there. He tires easily (normal), has some pain (duh) but definitely had a good day. He’ll be working that phone soon enough!
I asked him how he was feeling. He said, “Something like the mountain man that successfully fought off six bears. Unfortunately, there were seven bears.” He’s back.
Speaking of back, that’s the next hurtle. He has surgery Thursday to revisit his back, clean it etc. We’re hoping they’ll close it up for good but won’t know until they get there.
They sprung him from the splint on his left hand. Guess they didn’t need all that access after all. So he has one unencumbered limb.
His days and nights are turned around. He sleeps more during the day. I’m told this is common for ICU patients since the ICU routine never changes. They do exactly the same things day and night, and a lot of those things disturb patients. (Such as turning him every 90 minutes.) But, he’ll get his sleep pattern back to normal.
That’s it for today. Again, thank you for your continued good wishes.
