Good afternoon everyone! It’s your favorite guest blogger. Although I have a feeling my days are numbered. I think Ryan has a blog all ready in his head including a few pictures. Last night he had a good night. He was able to get some sleep and his pain was under control. He’s back to eating and drinking like normal and we spent most of the day yesterday out of his room and either walking around or sitting up in the observatory at the top of the building.
I got to his room about an hour ago and today seems the same. His pain is tolerable, he doesn’t wear his oxygen anymore, and we already took a long walk. In an hour or so they will come and remove his catheter and epidural. After that is removed he will only be taking pills to control his pain. No IV medication will be used. Once they see that he can control his pain with only pills and if his oxygen levels continue like they have been, he’ll get out tomorrow! It looks like we may be flying home on Tuesday if everything goes well medically, but when flying standby things can always change.
The boys and I are doing good. Logan slept through the night again last night. The other cuddly little guy slept on my chest most of the night. He seemed to really miss me yesterday and needed to be close. After Logan naps this morning, the boys will come over to see Ryan. While I definitely don’t want to stay her longer, I will really miss this weather. The sunshine everyday is so amazing and the temperatures have been around 60-70 degrees. I’m wearing flip flops today! I wish I could bring this weather back to Michigan!
I will try and write again tomorrow to let you know how the discharge went. Thank you for keeping up with Ryan’s progress and all the thoughts and prayers!
