AFTER A WEEK

Victor has been in the hospital over a week now and he is ready to come home. The hospital wants to keep him for at least another week. They don't anticipate releasing him to work until the end of June. Victor's boss is a little disappointed. He landed a concrete job in Camarillo so Victor doesn't have to commute. The job begins June 15th...

He is eating. They started him off with jello, broth and clear juices. They were bringing a lot for each meal and he started giving me what he couldn't eat. Yesterday afternoon, Dr. Holley told Victor that he could start eating full liquids. This means he can have pudding and thicker soups.

He is watching TV and listening to his music. Both a good sign, since he didn't want any noise for the first 4 days.

He has had a real shower and he was happy to be cleaner than the sponge baths were allowing.

My lungs have decided to become the incubator for all the nasty germs that can be found in the hospital. I have this nasty cough the expells all kinds of junk. So, I have been feeling pretty lousy. We both took a two hour nap yesterday evening. Victor was more rested than me. I coughed frequently.

The kids are wild now. They don't get anything done. It has taken them 24 hours to fold two loads of laundry and there are 8 more to go... :)

The ward members have brought meals every night - so the kids have been eating well.

Today will be another day where I will spend the bulk of the day at the hospital after I get a few things done here at the house.

I will update you soon.

Thanks for keeping us posted. As for your cough--maybe you have the dreaded flu? Or, maybe you just need more vitamin D. About 100,000 units a day for several days should do the trick! :)
