Rolling in the Ward
Iain went for a ride in his wheels around the CICU, with his entourage of 6 to cheers and a standing ovation from his fan club among his doctors and nurses. Seriously though people were thrilled and Carol helped him stand for two minutes. The powers that be, Sandeep, his critical care doctor this week has decided that trache trials are to be delayed until he becomes stronger, as he was so depleted. It makes sense. He is struggling with anxiety and delirium in the evening but he is in a much better spot than ever before. Granted tomorrow is the dreaded Thursday. Let us hope that we can break the curse of Calamitous Thursdays.
We would love it if he could sleep at night as we do not leave until he falls asleep. But then he wants us here early in the morning too. We stopped sleeping in the hospital due to the idiot people who insist on sleeping in the common areas with colds or even worse, children with colds, neither are allowed.
