Update

Sun is Shining, Health is Healing (Largely reposted from LINDA thread in TWoP DW boards)
     Bob spent another good day yesterday, getting more sleep and successfully eating, for scenarios wherein "eating" means the consumption of clear liquids. Today, he phoned me and told me that he's been put back on full liquids*  which includes puddings and ice cream: I've been directed to bring him up a pint of top quality French vanilla ice cream. He also thinks he wants me to bring the laptop up so he can record a personal update/greeting/thanks and upload it to You Tube. If that happens, we will Alert the Press.

     I still don't know when they're going to cut him loose, because they still want to check his vitals regularly, and ensure that the "scab" on the duodenum is set strong enough to take movement while healing goes on underneath (wow; just looked at that last phrase, and got a little green in the gills.) But I think I'll be able to go back to work tomorrow and not have my every thought of him, instead of my work. I've got a couple of meetings to cover this week, and I'm hoping I can go to them, and then duck back to the hospital to visit him. And then, maybe, maybe, we'll get him home before the week is out.



*and the crowd goes wild*

You're so neat and thoughtful. Flowers are a goodness, especially in the hospital. Visual delight, carrying love in every blossom.

You are so sweet. Thanks - you may want to check to see if he's still in the hospital.

Mmmmm. Ice cream.

Praises be for a good weekend. Here's to a smooth week ahead, gliding along the recovery road in comfort as the rich delight of premium French vanilla ice cream coats his taste buds and yours, too.

He ended up asking me to postpone the French vanilla until he makes it home, but smooth week, recovery road, et al ... yeah, fantastic!

(And you can tell he's getting better can't you? Smart-ass ....)

I am so very glad to hear that things are starting to improve!
kaffyr
Oct. 11th, 2010 02:56 am (UTC)
And we are crossing our fingers that this improvement isn't followed by some horrid surprise.

I don't think our prime minister will be visiting the Chicago area soon so you should be good.

Oct. 11th, 2010 04:22 am (UTC)
Yeah, I have to agree - that man's a horrid surprise that never stops being horrid. Or a surprise.

He's been enjoying sherbet and real soup and chocolate ice cream. I'm going to get him the French vanilla.
