Just a squeeze

Saturday, August 03, 2013

When I got to the hospital to see my honey, I was greeted with the fact that he had been extubated. He is really worn out, but breathing strong, though labored. He could answer his name in a whisper, and squeeze the Neuologist's hand when she asked.

He gave my hand a little squeeze when I asked.

What a relief to have him off the machine, and working at breathing.
I just came home to nap.
That is what I will do.

I ate oatmeal banana applesauce bars for breakfast that I made, and had a breadless snadwich for lunch, and fruit cup. Later I had a chocolate bar.

Napping chair is calling my name.
walked 1.5 miles already today.

    That is better news Deborah!! So glad he can respond!!
    Do rest where you can. Try eat more fresh citrus fruit, as Vit C combats stress. Make sure you are well hydrated too..
    Take care of yourself!
