Richard Improves

Things were much better today.  Other than the thunderstorm that woke me up at a quarter after 3 in the morning.

I got to the hospital at 8 and Richard was just waking up.  He was groggy and confused after a day on sedatives, but as the hours past he visibly improved.  The nurses and techs kept checking on him and his breathing.  All of their tests had good results so around 11:30 they took the tubes out and Richard was sooooo happy about that!!!  But the tech told him he couldn’t talk for 2 hours.  So I went out for a long lunch to keep him from trying talk to me.

When I got back, we talked and talked.  Later in the afternoon, one of my former co-workers came by and visited for a bit.  We had a good visit.

Richard really improved today.  In addition to getting off the respirator, his hands and feet aren’t as swollen as they were.  He actually has wrinkles on his knuckles again!  If he continues like this, he will be out of the ICU tomorrow.  YAY!!

Thanks to one and all for the good wishes!

    Ohai, Cween, I just found out from jamamakitteh on fb about Richard. Oh, my I am so sorry that he is sick! And also so glad that he is getting better! Goodness, it sounds like you got him to the hospital in the nick of time!

    I didn’t know you were in OK again. We sure had some tornados this week, didn’t we? Glad you are safe.

    Also, I am sitting in the hospital with my mom right now. She moved down from ICU to “PCU” (progressive care unit) yesterday. She fell and broke her hip at the assisted living, and had several complications before and after the surgery, including heart stuff. Isn’t it nice to see the tubes being removed? One by one in our case.

    I haven’t been here much lately (on fb), but I still care about you and all the cheezpeeps. You and Richard are in my prayers! {{{{{{Cween, Richard}}}}}}}
