I went to the hospital yesterday and today. I came bearing gifts.... of food. (Hospital food is disgusting!) I brought Christian Jamba Juice and a peanut butter sandwich (with all-natural PB and fresh wholewheat bread I had made that morning), and he seemed to like that.
Today I brought him wholewheat pumpkin muffins I had made for breakfast. He gobbled them up, along with the other food I brought....peaches, string cheese, and hummus with crackers. It is so great to see him getting his appetite back.
He is getting stronger. Both days he walked from his room down the hall to Stephanie's room, using a walker. He goes into the OR tomorrow for a minor procedure, and will most likely be transferred to rehab on Monday.
Stephanie also goes to surgery tomorrow for grafting on her face. Please pray that those grafts will be successful!
P.S. I twisted my foot wrong as I stepped onto the curb at the hospital today. I thought it would go away when I walked it off. But it didn't. I limped around the hospital in pain all day.... I didn't want to complain... it seemed so petty in comparison. Finally, later this afternoon I was in so much pain that I asked Christian's physical therapist if he would look at it (actually, he's the OT so his focus is hands, but good enough!). It was pretty swollen by then. He said it is probably sprained and he wrapped it for me. I iced it and took Advil when I got home and I'm feeling much better tonight. I'm hoping it will be better in the morning.
