Up date on John

Today's update
I do believe the universe is testing me to see how strong I can be. On top of everything else going on, this morning the power went off at 2:30 and thankfully came back on just after 7. But still it was another morning of getting Brian up and off to school in the dark. Then when I left the hospital to come home I sat in stop and go traffic on the highway (three lanes wide...I was in the middle lane) for half an hour. And on top of all that, it was pouring down rain the whole drive up to the hospital and back. The good news is I can now find my way from the parking deck to ICU and back without even looking at the signs on the walls! LOLJohn is about the same. He has a bit of a fever but they're not really worried about it. He's a bit puffy but that's from having two surgeries in three days and from all the fluids they've pumped into him...they're not worried about that either. I just talked to the nurse and she's in the process of taking him off sedation. She's fiddling with the pain med ratio to make it so he can wake up some without being in extreme pain. I have to call back later and see how it's going. But his vitals are all still good and that's what matters right now.I'll post again when I have more news.


  1. Thanks for keeping us updated. I hope things continue to go as smoothly as possible.

  2. Hi Tudy...can not send email from Steve's house although I am able to receive it. Appreciate reading all of the updates. I have sent Terry messages via her blog in comments.
    Take care.

  3. Hi Tudy, I just said a little pray of comfort for you and healing for John. God bless you and your family. :)

  4. I've just being catching up on my blog reading and hearing the news about John. My heart feels so heavy for them and I hope the days and weeks to come bring healing and comfort for them both. I'll be keeping Terry very much in my thoughts..we've shared several emails and comments on each other's blogs and I'd love to send her a card. She mentioned on her blog that you were the one to ask. I'd be very grateful if you could email me her address when it is convenient. Many thanks.
