Courtney continues to do well. He got up and showered this afternoon and has been walking. He choked down a little beef broth, evidently it's not so yummy here. The popsicles still remain his favorite. He has been off his oxygen this afternoon. He did struggle with a little nausea this evening, but nothing a little Zofran and Ativan couldn't handle.
We had a really nice visit today from Courtney's friend, Darrell that he used to work with. Don also stopped by for his daily visit. Don and his wife Dana sent a beautiful arrangement that really cheers up the room. It is hard to even describe its so gorgeous, so here is a photo!
An adorable basket of "goodies" came from his friends Joe and Pam in Canada. Its filled with wine, chocolates, and even some toy cars! It's all we can do to keep him out of the wine, but I don't think wine constitutes as a clear liquid!
It's hilarious because the staff here asked if Courtney was a minister. The tech thought for sure that his faithful congregation was sending him all these extravagant gifts. I replied, no just fabulous friends! We had a good laugh about that.
We have had a great nurse on the floor the past two days, Amber. She is here again tomorrow so we are excited about that. He considered asking her if he could persuade her to stay all night and be his nurse!
Thanks for all the prayers, comments, and sweet messages. We are so glad he continues to do well. We are still hoping to knock him out with some good old Ambien and pain meds tonight so he can have a more restful night.
