Poppy Update

They took all the beeping monitors off Poppy and moved him to a private room this afternoon. He moved himself from the ICU bed to the wheelchair for the move and then sat in the recliner for several hours while visiting with church friends and the ROMEOS. He and his buddies have been harassing the cute nurses all morning, and I told him at this rate he'll never get his catheter out.

But he's looking pink and lively and just as ornery as ever. Seeing him this morning made me realize how gray and lifeless he looked yesterday.

He and mom want me to thank all of you for your prayers and good wishes.

Thanks for the good report! He may just want to leave the catheter in, makes for convenience. Get up to go to the bathroom? Nah, just.....ahhhhh.

I'm happy to hear he is feeling better. It sounds like your Mom did a great job of taking care of things - hope she can take a little time to relax. I think the ICU nurses will be a little sad for a bit when he leaves.

This would probably be a good time to research what your Dad's specific needs will need when he gets home.

Time to take a breath and relax.
