I called dad and talked to him tonight.......Wed. December 17
(sunset June 2008 - click to see full size)
He was very talkative.....but I think I finally talked him out because all of a sudden he said "I think I'm going to hang up Melinda," and he sounded like he could fall asleep.
He got up and walked around the hospital floor 3 times today.....and he told some hilarious stories that got me and him both laughing so hard he had a coughing spell. (I will let him decide if he wants to share them with you all, but knowing dad....he will one day whether we all want to hear them or not!) haha
Before discharge they will be moving him to another room as the floor he is on is going to be remodeled. So in the next day or so he will go to another floor and another room.
The "procedure" today was so/so. Some of the stuff apparently squirted out all over the bed and nurse when the doctor was pushing it into the tube in his lung....as the tube had been cut at an angle and the stuff was not flowing in as good as it did the first time. BUT they think they got it covered pretty well. Dad said it did not bother him much this time round.
He is anxiously awaiting tube removal and he hopes they might do it tomorrow. They have to check his x-rays first to make sure his lung is inflated.
