It’s only 11:40am, and I’ve already looked at the clock 50 times. Wow. We have a loooooong road ahead of us.
Nicks doing ok today. Pretty sedated still, which is good! I don’t want my baby in pain. But I guess that’s something I will have to get used to. They had to put his ventilator tube further down his throat. In an uncomfortable, unconscious state, he fought it. It took 3 of us to hold that Ironman’s hands down. His strength is a good sign.
He’s had a few low grade fevers today, which I’m worried about. They seem to have it under control though. Please help me pray that they are able to keep Nick infection free! We just can’t risk infection in those poor legs of his. I have every intention of him keeping them. The surgeon did mention, twice, that later down the line they may have to fuse all the bones in his ankles and feet. That would mean walking, awkwardly at best, due to an un-moveable ankle joint.
Ok, enough doom and gloom. I really hate the speculation. Really I do! These docs have NO IDEA just how strong Nicks spirit is!
For those of you who maybe only know -of- Nick, or who haven’t had the chance to discuss spirituality with him, probably have no idea just how spiritual he is. His bad ass rugged, exterior sure doesn’t represent his soft, caring and contemplative interior. He is so strong in his beliefs, and I know this will carry him through the tough times ahead.
