Dad’s nurse just came in and said dad will be moving to a room in PCU tonight. It seemed to be all a matter of finding a bed, it sounded as if it were full up there. So that is good news. The nurse said that it will be quieter up there, he can rest better, and heal up. Right now we are in ICU and right across the hall from the nurses station, so we can hear things beeping, people talking, and so on. Which isn’t too bad, but it will be nice to be upstairs in a more private room.
Grandpa and Donna were here today, as well as Grammie. Dad likes to have the visitors and it is nice for everyone to see him looking well. He is getting more color back in his skin.
Not much exciting has happened today. The respiratory therapist has been having dad do breathing treatments every 4 hours. She also mentioned that we need to have dad do this smaller hand-held treatment every hour tomorrow. This is to prevent pneumonia and keep the lungs working great.
To move dad up a floor they will get him up, walk a short way, ride a wheelchair up, and then get re-situated in a bed. It is good to get him up walking.
We will be going home soon I am sure, it is 8:10pm here, to let dad and ourselves get a rest. Maybe we will wait until he moves upstairs if it is not too long until we do that. We will write more tomorrow, and make it as exciting as we can. Keep in touch. Thanks for the monkey, dad loves it, even took a short cat nap with it. Thanks for the love and support.
