Day 236 - Jan 22, 2009

Today we went to the movies and had a blast. To be honest, the movie wasn't that great (Yes Man with Jim Carey), but we still had fun. Kevin was dancing and laughing and it was just so funny. I will admit though that he wanted to leave early because he didn't really like it, but once I explained that we couldn't because three other patients went too, he was okay with it. And I am so proud to say that we only went to the bathroom one time and he 'went' within 2 minutes. No more anxiety (as you said it would be, Kristen!)

He is really doing well overall. So well that the doctors have agreed to allow him to stay overnight with me one night this weekend. I am not sure if it will be tomorrow night or the next night, but I am excited and petrified for it to happen. Lucky for me, my sister, Kim, will be here to help too. She is arriving tomorrow afternoon through Tuesday.

And I am going to just quickly answer one question and then get to bed. To the anonymous poster that asked what kwim means - it stands for 'know what I mean?'. One of those silly net things I guess, lol.

It's great hearing Kevin will be allowed to Overnight.

Relax Leslie, put in a movie and pop some pop-corn and enjoy.

Everything will go fine with the overnight stay. Just another step on the road to getting out the hospital and on the way home!!

Glad things at the movies went well. You said there were other patients that went too? That's good that you all are getting out 'together', I think.

Hoping for an even better day tomorrow!
