Slumber party! Night two. I just laid out my spacious Tempurpedic cot next to his fancy air mattress hospital bed, popped some gourmet popcorn and set up my pedicure caddy to do each others toenails while we gossip about Madonna’s latest fashion. We may not be home, but at least we’re together.
Nick made huge headway today. The tube is out of his nose! What a relief. And he was cleared to have clear liquids. Jello and Sprite would certainly not be my first choice, but that’s what he wanted. They went down and stayed down just fine. We still haven’t spoke to the Doc yet about the results of the test. They’re not very communicative around here. We will definitely badger him tomorrow. And speaking of tomorrow, that’s when we plan to go home. The powers-that-be just don’t know that yet. We will start first thing in the morning addressing the issues that need resolved in order to go home (IV’s, catheter, eating solid food, etc). We’ve both had enough of this shit.
And of course, wouldn’t you know, Nick I-know-somebody-everywhere-I-go Fener recognized his evening nurse… from High School! It’s a really nice feeling making that connection. She’s taking excellent care of us both.
