Kevin was pretty quiet today. I think he is a little nervous about the surgery and I know he is very upset about having to go down to ICU. I don't remember how much I told you guys from when we were down there the last time, but at one point he was going to the bathroom and the nurse came in to give him meds. Because he was busy, he held up his hand telling her to give him a few minutes. She went out and told the doc that he wasn't ready and the docs went nuts and started making phone calls. Remember I said they were all mad because he didn't belong there? Well, at that moment they were screaming into the phone to someone that Kevin is not an ICU patient - he is a psychiatric patient because he is refusing his meds! They were so loud that Breezy and Kevin heard him and I can't imagine how it feels to hear someone talking about you and saying that you belong in the psych ward.
That whole ICU experience was horrible and when I told Kev we would be down there for the weekend he was so mad he wouldn't even talk to me or Tracy. He was fuming! I did my best to make him feel better about it, but no go.
But I think he is excited to have his head fixed too. He rubbed it each time someone came in to the room today as if to say 'see it now cause it's gone tomorrow'. I am anxious to see what he looks like too. It's been seven months of seeing the disfigurement and it's become natural to us.
And that pretty much sums up our day. He wasn't well enough to do much today either so we stayed at the hospital all day and just lounged. So I guess we just need to keep everything crossed for tomorrow and somehow I will let y'all know what happens. Look at the comments as that may be how it goes for a while anyway.
And if I may - please keep Andrew's Aunt Jodi in your thoughts too. She is having minor surgery tomorrow as well and she needs extra good health vibes sent her way also...Good Luck, Jodi!!!
