Thanks Master and Pim!
Last night sometime they finally got him a machine that releases morphine when you push a button. He was doing much better today. He got much better care today. They did have to give him two units of blood and he had a low grade fever and blood pressure was a bit high, but they are keeping an eye on all of that. He was able to rest some too today. I was there for 4 hours and now I'm sleepy.

What a terrible ordeal. I hope he gets better care now. It is a good idea that you will be there to be his advocate. He should use the morphine machine before the pain gets unbearable, it will be easier to bring it down if it isn't that bad before he uses the machine.

Please rest all you can. Don't neglect taking care of yourself. Eat nutritious meals and sleep as much as you need.

Tell Mark pim didn't sacrifice anything.

pim : Did too.
Q : No you didn't.
pim : Well...not yet.
Q : pim, where are you going with that goat?
pim : Odin must be appeased!
Q : pim, take the goat back to the neighbors.
pim : But...Odin...
Q : Has enough goats. And clean up the mess the goat left in the hallway.
I'm going to die the way I've lived...poor, screaming, and naked.

Hahahaha! :lol: You guys crack me up! He's home!!!!!!! yay!!!!!!!! He will have the stitches taken out next week, then some guy will fit him with something that shapes the stump. Then...a new state of the art leg. :D He has been amazing the docs and therapists at how quickly he has moved along. We live on the third floor and he is able to make it all the way up. He has a wheelchair, walker, rails on the side of the toilet. He needs them for now, but eventually he will be able to walk, run, drive, even work again. I am so relieved that all that pain and misery is behind him.

Though we had thanksgiving at the hospital, I was finally able to make my own turkey with all the trimmings today.

Now I have time to come to S.V. again!!!!! :D

Ariel has asked me to tell everyone that she will be offline for a little while until her computer gets fixed (not sure what all is wrong with her computer but she is having it looked at.) She's doing fine otherwise, just misses being able to talk to everyone online as usual.


Nice to see SV's Christmas look again. :snowman3:
