waiting...

Its 3:00 and we are waiting to be transferred to another room. The room we are in now is quite small, with only two chairs. They are still waiting for other discharges in the hospital. Dr. Smith, the "green" intern is on his way to check on him. Courtney says "he is so green, I could mow him." He is having some pain and we may need to change up some of his pain medication regimen. He has been joking around with the nurses, we have had some really nice ones. It's hard as a nurse to be on the other side of things. Watching a family member go through something like this is difficult. However, I can only imagine what Sue and Tyler feel. What a blessing to have him doing so well! I honestly think even Dr. Curley and the nurses are surprised at his rapid progress. Thank you again for all your comments, Courtney was laughing reading them earlier. He read through the past blogs and said it was strange to read through what he had gone through yesterday. More later.

Hey Courtney!
We understand you are already causing trouble over there, climbing over bed rails, getting out of bed unassisted. Now that's the spirit! I do a summary of the blog in the morning and afternoon and all the folks are so glad to hear you are doing so well. You have our hearts and our wish for a speedy recovery. Hugs from everyone

Hey Ashley!

Hang in there! I'm sure it has been difficult being on the "other side" of things, but I'm also sure that it has made you even stronger than before - as if that was even possible!

Love you! Love to all!
