Progress and maybe a better mood

Let me start out by saying that God has showered us with blessings --- as hard as this has been so far, I know that things could be way worse. Thank you for your prayers so far!

The only complication we are dealing with right now is the wet lungs. They are giving him a diuretic, so that will help him get rid of the fluid. He is on various pain meds (toridol, tylenol, morphine, and oxycodone I think) and he actually seemed more comfortable this afternoon as he slept. He ate a little bit, too. We are praying for a restful night!

We may be moved out to the floor tomorrow. He is slowly losing tubes and wires. He removed an IV this morning himself! Not too cool since they will have to replace it sometime soon. They also removed his foley, so I know that is more comfortable for him. He may freak out at tt-ing in his pull-up, though.

Thanks for checking in on us!
