Richie gets to drink today! His intestines have been making plenty of noise, so the doctors said he could be on a clear liquid diet...and if he wants, he could probably start more solid foods tonight. Richie's wanting to be very careful though, so he may just stick with jello until tomorrow. He's so happy, and so am I!
Prayer request....Richie's vascular surgeon visited yesterday and said he was concerned about the aorta graft that he put in. I was in the shower when he came, so do not totally understand what he is concerned about. They're going to have to do an ultrasound today I think. Please pray that there wouldn't be any problems!
We got a little more sleep last night than we have the past few. Richie had to go use the bathroom frequently, so it's always a process to get him unhooked from everything and then re-hooked up again. But the kind nurse put a "do not disturb" sign on the door so that the PCTS aren't coming in every half hour for one thing or another like they had been. That helped ;-)
