Hospital - Day 8
Yea - yea - yea! The doctors said Ronnie might be able to come home on Wednesday!!
His NG tube has been removed, and he is MUCH happier. He has been allowed a clear liquid diet, but suprisingly, he hasn't wanted much to eat or drink. Does a person's system start to shut down after about 10 days and just not desire to eat or drink? He needs to pick up the pace a little so we actually can go home Wednesday.
He really is back to his old happy self now. He and Chip were teasing like typical brothers, and he was laughing a lot with the nurses. The doctors say everything is looking really good, and even though we will be going home with three tubes still in place, and I will have to learn how to flush and drain some attached bags, I don't care. I just want him home!
I took a couple of pictures today but they didn't turn out. I tried taking them with a new phone, and I apparently haven't figured out how to get a good picture yet. So today I am just going with my stack of happiness blocks!
