I See You!!
A quick update!
Moon is about the same! Which sounds bad, but considering that last week he was a lot worse (we even got the "you'd better come up, now!" call), I'd not that bad.
It's gonna be a long road, but we remain hopeful.
I gave my wife a break on Saturday because she was a mess. I sat up there with him. Tube coming outta everywhere. He is getting dialysis everyday, he has a feeding tube, a trach hole, a tube draining his lung, and God knows what else. It's like something out of a Peter Cook book. He is being kept paralyzed so that he can get treatment without fighting it.
So, I'm there looking at this and I notice something.
The nurse comes in and I ask "Did he order coffee this morning?" She looks at me like I'm a moron. "What?" "Well, there's been a half drunk Dunkin'Donuts Iced Coffee on his tray since I've been here. I just assumed it was his!"
She gets all indignant . . ."It's probably the attending nurse's!"
"Well, I think it's disrespectful to the patients to leave trash in their room."
She storms out.
A short time later the attending nurse comes in and is fiddling with the tubes and stuff. When I looked up from my book, the coffee was gone.
I don't get up there often, but I make it count. They certainly know who I am now!
