We had another decent day - not as good as most, but that's because Kevin just wanted to go 'home' - home being the hospital. I was able to keep him down here until after dinner, but he gave the loudest sigh of relief when he hit his hospital bed. I actually felt really bad for keeping him away for so long, but I know he needs to realize that the hospital isn't his home and that we will be leaving that environment within a few months. I was told this evening that this is actually quite normal for someone going through this to feel most safe at the hospital and that he will need to stay away often to comprehend that it isn't home.
I guess it doesn't help that this place (The Fisher House) is not a great place to have to stay either. It's not that it's not beautiful - it certainly is, but they should have put some cash into insulating the walls. You can hear EVERYTHING that goes on in this whole building from your room. Matter of fact, the two women that just arrived a couple days ago that are next door - they fight constantly! It's become a bit of a joke here, but I can't stand to hear it all night long. Kevin was so mad too as they occasionally even woke him up over the weekend. You should hear them right now screaming at each other about one of them snoring. Oh well, it's definitely better than the young couple that was here last week. You can only imagine what I was listening to then, lol!
We did get up though and go to Cracker Barrel for breakfast today and he really enjoyed that. But to be honest, we didn't really do anything else at all. We all did sleep in and it still takes quite some time to get Kevin ready to face the day so it was actually early afternoon by the time we went for breakfast, lol.
So I guess we'll see what next weekend goes like, huh...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
