Sunday Update

Ron was discharged from the hospital yesterday about 5:00 p.m. His doctor said he was doing remarkably well and that he had no reason to keep him in the hospital. So... last night went well. Ron is getting around real well. He took a shower this morning and said he felt human again. Tomorrow we go to the doctor's office and they will remove the pump that has been administering the nerve blocker. I think he will tolerate everything really well. He's been on a soft food diet but he's ready to start trying other things. So...I'm cooking mashed potatoes and baked chicken tonight and we'll see how he does. I'll probably go back to work on Tuesday if tomorrow goes as well as today. I didn't sleep so well myself, strange place I guess. I definitely sleep better in my own house but I'm not ready to leave him alone all night yet. Maybe Tuesday...we'll see.

Thanks to everyone for all your good wishes and prayers through all of this. It has been a scarey time. I know we have a ways to go yet but I'm hopeful and hope is everything!

Slowly, ever so slowly the breathing becomes normal. Steady as she goes, the future is in sight.

Great news all around. You can exhale now. Still keeping you both in my prayers.
Hope he got to watch the game but sorry about the loss.
