Ed's doing good

I stopped in this AM to see Dad. He was still in the ICU room but they've put away all the IVs and monitoring gadgets and he will be moved to a regular room on the same floor as soon as they get an open space. They changed his bandage while I was there and gave him a very sterile looking stretchy stocking cap to hold the new dressing in place. He has a bunch of sutures over his right ear that look almost like he got beaned with a baseball that left an impression of the baseball stitches.

It looks like getting decent food will continue to be a challenge. His two egg omelette was reportedly small enough to make one wonder about the size of the chicken laying the eggs. We'll see how that goes.

Dad's in good spirits. He hasn't been out of bed yet but they'll probably give him a chance to walk from his current room to the regular room. I'll stop in to see him this evening. Mom and Dad had tickets to Wicked (a musical prequel to the Wizard of Oz) for tonight, so I'll be taking Mom to see that. We're still aiming to bring him home Saturday.

  1. Sounds like he is doing well so far!
    I'll send up a cheeseburger and fries.
    With some salt and pepper of course....

  2. Sounds like he's bouncing pretty quickly. Can't keep a good man down, eh?

    Give him our love...

  3. So glad to hear he is doing well! He is one tough ol' bird :) Praying for good test results from the biopsy.

  4. That is great. Tell him I'll make him a 2 egg omelette next time he visits. :)

    So it was over the ear and not over the eye!
    Thanks for the clarification. :)
