Update, Update, Update!

It's Judy again. Dave is doing amazingly well! He's still in the ICU, but only because there are no beds available in the step-down unit. And, as of last night when I left, there were three people ahead of him for going to that unit. So, he may be in ICU for another day or two.

He's "wired for sound," with hookups to more machines than an old-fashioned computer room! And every reading is right on "normal," which is also amazing.

His great accomplishment today will be to stand up and walk around the room. That's all he'll be allowed to do. The main thing is to let the re-section inside heal completely before doing a lot of moving around. He's impatient to be up and about because he's basically been tied to the bed and its confines since the wee hours of Tuesday morning. He doesn't have computer access, it's too uncomfortable to read, daytime TV sucks, and he's B O R E D ! ! ! ! !

He's also joking around with ALL the nurses and doctors and anyone else he can snag. Classic David! I LOVE it. hehehehehehe

Okay, I'm heading to the hospital. Keep those good vibes coming. They're working!

Yay! Glad to hear that he is doing okay, albeit bored out of his mind. I wonder if you mix steak juice with jello would you get steak jello?
