The hotel is all taken care of. Thank goodness! I was so worried that we would check out today and have nowhere to go. I believe a Col got involved from Ft Stewart and things just miraculously happened. Matter of fact, I was told to go to any hotel I wanted and it would get covered. So I did. I booked us rooms at a Hawthorne Suites because it is basically an apartment. We got two rooms - Breezy has her own and Kevin and I are sharing a 2 bedroom suite that has a full kitchen. I just can't wait to stuff a turkey or a chicken or something (have y'all figured out that I just LOVE stuffing? LOL). We are all so darn tired of eating out!!
But, we didn't leave the hospital today after all. I had the option of going to the hotel with Kevin, but I just wanted to make sure we had his pain controlled after last night's incident. He did pretty good most of the day, but he was in more pain this evening so I am glad we stayed. I may decide not to discharge us tomorrow too - I need to think about it. I will see how he handles his first shower tomorrow and go from there, I guess.
So here's a photo of Kevin from today. His head is still a little swollen, but he is lookin' good, huh? I just so hope that we don't have to remove that plate!
Look at his trach site! It is gone! Impressive, huh? It looks like they are going to have to fix his one eye because the doc put too much skin there and he intends to do it the same way he did the trach area.
And we decided not to fix the area above his lip on the left side. It is very taut and you can see how it is pulling his lip upward, stretching it quite a bit, but it is a major surgery apparently. The surgeon said he would basically have to cut that whole muscle out and rebuild it. He doesn't suggest it and after hearing that, I agree.
And now I am signing off so that I can finish watching 'Hitch' with Kevin. Will Smith is so awesome, isn't he? He can always make us laugh!
First 2 from the Nov kit!
