Ahead of Schedule


Around dinner time yesterday they asked if we would mind moving. We had to laugh as we got welcomed into our old stomping grounds and rolled right into our old room (people know where to find us). We had a pretty peaceful night–so much so that in rounds this morning they decided that we could go home early! So, the wheels are in motion. Allowing for standard hospital-time delays we should be heading out mid-afternoon.

A well-meaning child life volunteer stopped by yesterday with a really cool action figure…that scared the heck out of Rudy. We devised a much better alternative this morning with “Happy Glove Head” (TM). Thanks to the nifty expensive telescoping exam light we attached it to, it provides hours of entertainment and therapy!

Looking forward to busting out of here!

    It is 5:30 p.m. and I have just returned from Overland Park and Steve’s birthday lunch with Steve, Michelle and Rachel. First thing back home and in the door I checked the blog and am so excited to hear Rudy was released early. I know that will make for a happy home tonight. Way to go, Rudy!
