Late yesterday, they moved Bob from ICU to a regular room -- a sign that he is on the mend. I'm told he will probably have to stay in the hospital the rest of the week for IV antibiotics. I hope to spring him by the weekend, fingers crossed!
Thanks everyone for the well wishes! I wish I could take the time to rest, but spending days at the hospital is not relaxing. Yesterday, when I came into his room in the morning, he stretched his good arm out to me and cried out "Miss You!!!" and "Help!!"
I arrive in the a.m. and stay past 6:00. The house is lonely without Bob. Ripley has taken over his hospital bed, waiting for Bob's return.
Last night, I called Bob's room to say "good night" and he didn't want to hang up the phone. Kept saying "miss you" and "go home". I tell you, my heart goes out to him...
Meanwhile, I crashed the new van into a phone pole. GA!!! Add that to my list of stuff to take care of once this hospitalization is through!
