Not too much to report tonight. I am staying at the hospital again (I imagine I will be here until he gets discharged) so I am still pretty tired. Neither one of us slept much last night as they come in constantly and wake you to change the garbage bags or do the many vitals checks through the night.
They don't have him on the monitors anymore so things should be better though tonight. I hope so anyway.
Other than that, Kevin is doing somewhat better. He has only taken pain meds a few times today and we even got him to eat some. He had two large servings of Broccoli Cheese soup from Panera Bread and quite a bit of ice cream too. Once he started eating you could tell he felt better - even though it is so hard for him to eat. Right now his lower lip is about 3 times the size it normally is and that ballast (is that the right word for the bandage type thing?) is stitched right into his lower lip making it very difficult for him to open his mouth far.
And he did get up and walk around for a bit twice today. That's always a good sign. Maybe tomorrow he will be able to get out of the hospital for a bit. They were going to discharge us today, but he bled some through the night last night so they decided to keep him after all. I can't really see the sense in discharging him tomorrow as we have to be back super early again on Thursday, but maybe he can at least go to the house for dinner. We'll see...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
