Getting Settled

The usual things are going on…answering questions, getting his medication straight and on schedule, starting his IV meds, getting his food scheduled, blood tests, physical therapy scheduled, respiratory treatments scheduled.  The normal stuff.  🙂

We had a pretty good night.  I went to bed at 11 – he went to bed around 1:30.  Then he woke up bright and early to doctors poking, breathing treatments, physical therapy.  Now we are already on the second round of breathing treatments and physical therapy.  They will be drawing blood two times this afternoon to check his IV medication levels.  The school teacher has been this morning to start getting everything straight so he can keep up with his school work.  He has his own computer now so he is in heaven.  🙂

I also just found out that Nicholas has volunteered me to participate in a study here at the hospital.  He has done it several times before.  All you really do is breathe into a tube.  It collects the condensation from your breathing and they use it to test for whatever they test for.  It’s pretty cool actually.  Anything to help find a cure – I’m game.

If anything interesting happens, even if it doesn’t, I will post every day.  Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

    My heart is with you folks at the Hill. I’m thankful that you know that God is in every “poke and prod” that the doctors deem necessary.
    Thanks for posting consistently. I’m glad you don’t post with my infrequency!
