Spending the night in a hospital is, well, not restful. Loretta and I both passed out at about 10:00 and woke up at the first major inspection at midnight. It was a good nap. After that it was touch and go as far as sleep. The nurses and doctors here have been fabulous. It isn’t clear how much of that has to do with friends in high places (thanks Nicki!) or if they are like that all the time – I suspect that they are like that all the time. So no complaints.
We are resting and waiting for the pharmacy to get us meds to take home with us. Once we have those, we will head home.
The surgeon and the associated cohort came through this morning and inspected their work. They think they passed. From outward appearances, I think they are right.
Loretta is doing fine physically, though exhausted. Emotionally she is back and forth, She loves to read all your comments and is trying hard to accept that it is okay that you all care for her like you do. She reads (or I read to her) every comment and I expect that she will have a lot more to say once she is home sitting on the couch with her Chromebook.
Next update we should be home.
