Kevin was able to get up today and we made it over to the Family Center to rent a movie, but he was hurting too bad to spend any time there so we went back to the hospital without one. We tried though, right?
We also realized today that the anti vertigo medication fell away so he hasn't gotten any since the first day. We put him back on it this afternoon so hopefully we see a change.
We are going to be messing with his meds over the next week; taking some away and adding others, to try to get him to a better place. Wish us mega luck on this, please.
One really awesome thing today was that Kevin had acupuncture done for his nauseousness. Totally cool, as I had only seen it done in the movies, and I have to admit that we had no bouts of nausea at all tonight. The jury is still out on it in my eyes until tomorrow though. We have periods of a few hours where he is fine, but we haven't went a full 24 hours since the plate was removed.
And two good things happened today - first, we can get the key to the apt this Saturday instead of next Thursday. I am glad because this will give me time to get things organized before Kevin comes home.
Second, I opted to rent a washer/dryer instead. Way cheaper as I couldn't find a large capacity set on craigs list (where I had been looking for almost a week). People just aren't getting rid of large capacity sets, that's what everyone is buying right now.
As for the hospital bed, we are thinking it's not going to be a problem. All of the docs are in line with the need for it. Now we just need to figure out which insurance carrier is going to cover the cost.
Oh, and before I forget - can someone tell me what the dark green beret means? Kevin saw a guy wearing one when we left the hospital today and he was in total awe. Not being military myself and him not being able to talk, I couldn't even begin to guess what he was trying to tell me. I assume the guy was something special...
And now I am going to leave you with a very grainy photo of Kevin with Daniel, the other soldier that survived the attack that took Andrew and James from us:
