Michael's Friday Update

Well today is Michael's 13th day in the hospital. I am back at work for most of the day. I have been leaving early to visit before I go home.

He has been on 'room' air yesterday but is still getting breathing treatments. He still has pnuemonia. Has 'goo' in his lungs. His throat is hurting again this morning. His platelets are low hence the red spots all over his legs.

But all in all his is 150% better than he was a week ago when they thought he was dying and wouldn't last the day.

Still don't know when leaving date is.

Thanks for the prayers. They are what is making this miracle happen.

Love and Hugs to all,

Additional update from the Mouth of the Rabbit himself:

Nothing wrong with my throat - was not even brought up or an issue. Having chest pains similar to the ulcer incident when we first got here. Just did an EKG and am sending me downstairs to scan my Cat. Other than that, all is well. Breathing is holding - oxy levels high. Just having trouble with heart rate being through the roof insanely high but they think that is just because I get so stressed over environmental circumtances. Need to learn to "Let it Be" and calm down and take my Ativan!

Thanks to all of y'all for being there for mom. I know it means a lot to her.

I'm so happy to see Micael is doing better. In addition to being sick, long stays in the hospital just plain old suck! They say you know your getting better when you have the energy to complain about what's going on around you! I see that is happening already!

I'm going tag along on your blog if you don't mind...
