Waiting for what Monday will bring


Again a pretty calm day here with very little to report.  Livy and I enjoyed our weekend together and we were especially encouraged by a number of visitors.  Rudy has been very calm today and his numbers look good.  While he had a little fussy spell this morning (what baby doesn’t), he’s settled down for the rest of it so we haven’t messed with him much.  At some point this afternoon, we must have shifted his position a bit because the nurses and I have now gotten a taste for the recurring vent alarm that made Trish contemplate making an adjustment to the machine with a shotgun.

Livy and I had a fun time hanging out with Rudy.  She took a break from playing with nurses to play in the hospital playroom and we enjoyed two meals at her favorite place (Socko’s Subs).  While we were planning on driving back together about now, as the plan for Monday isn’t clear, I’m staying around for at least the evening (if not the night).  So, our friends Bob and Janet were kind enough to take along a weepy passenger on their way back to SB from Oceanside.

As it stands now, Rudy is on the surgery schedule for 10am tomorrow (Monday).  No infection has presented itself so right now there’s nothing in his condition that is changing plans.  Perhaps one of the other cases they mentioned to us will still show up to bump us from the schedule, but as far as Dr. Lee could determine, he’s on the schedule so until we hear different that’s the plan.  If surgery’s on, I’ll stick around and we’ll be keeping you posted in any case.
