Nick is moving forward slowly, but surely. They removed the tube that went up his nose and down to his stomach. They removed his oxygen. They put him in the unit next to ICU that is a small step down. And he’s not in any pain, yet. That’s because he is high as shit on pain Meds and completely out of it. My biggest goal right now is to get Nick on the proper pain Meds that will allow him to be himself and manage his pain effectively. There will be some important decisions coming up soon, that I feel he must be involved in. I’m very grateful he named me his Power of Attorney, and I feel I’ve done a good job acting in ways he would want me to. But he’s awake now.
Still not ready for visitors yet either. I know many of you are chomping at the bit to see your bro. Yes!! It shouldn’t be too long now.
I can’t believe it’s been 10 days since his accident. Wow, seems like forever since I’ve heard his loud voice, walked hand in hand with him, heard him laugh because he stunk up the plane, or hugged him fully. He’s an excellent hugger. But I guess for now, holding his hand and kissin his cheek will have to suffice. He’s alive. And this miraculous second chance feels so good.
