New & News

News: Hubby is still in the hospital for another night. His transplant doctor happens to be on the floor for another complex case even though he's not on call for the holiday weekend. He pretty much gets to call the shots, and he told the other members of the transplant team that he wanted Hubby to stay for another night. I think he just wants to make sure his white count and liver numbers continue to go down (they were a little elevated when we were in the ER) and that his tummy really is okay and awake for good. It's no fun when they have to come back in again.

New: I mentioned Hubby wasn't sleeping good at home. Part of it was habit from waking up every couple of hours in the hospital for vitals to be checked. More of it was that he didn't have a recliner to sleep in a reclined position. Although our bed is fantastic, it's not possible to get it like a reclined hospital bed, and the couch is big and comfy but also not the same. We haven't had recliners since 2000. We gave our fantastic ones to my sister because we didn't have room for them in our house.

Today on the way home from the hospital I went to the furniture store and purchased a recliner. The boys and I went tonight and picked it up at the warehouse so it would be here when Hubby gets home, hopefully tomorrow.

It literally took me a minute to pick it out. After I did, I found out it was on sale as one of the Black Friday specials. Yay! Then I found out it was a Lazy Boy just like our old ones we loved. It looks almost just like them, maybe identical, just a different color. It felt just like sitting in our old chairs when I tested it. That must have been why I loved it so much!

So now Hubby can have a chair to rest and recline and sleep in when he comes home. He still has a long recovery ahead of him, and now he can be more comfortable.

News: Heather might go home tomorrow. Wouldn't that be funny if she and Hubby left on the same day, even if it was his second time!

Hoping he is able to go home tomorrow - and he'll be comfy in that new chair. Glad it was on sale!
I'm praying for him and Heather too!

Robert mentioned you bought him a new chair. Hopefully he is enjoying it on this Sunny, Sunday afternoon.
I just got home from HF and Heather will be released tomorrow if she continues to improve. The doctor thought the port in her neck got a little infection and caused her WBC to elevate. It was removed last night and this morning her numbers were better. Heather is definately ready to get out and it will be wonderful having her home. Take care.

Kayren, what a deal...the right
recliner and on sale to boot!!!
Now Robert can even sleep in
this one...I know because I have
used mine in my den to sleep in
when elevation of the back is
necessary to be really comfy.
So glad to learn that he is now
home and WILL enjoy that chair so
much. Robert has one very smart
wife. Hugs, Myke

Wow, Kayren, I've been really behind on reading my fave blogs lately due to school so I have just been catching up on your hubby's story here. Amazing! I'll be praying for him as he continues to recover.

Rochelle said...

Wow. I am so far behind on blogs, I had no idea any of this was happening! I just got all caught up with your posts about it. How completely generous of hubby to do that for Heather. To God be the glory!!! Continued prayers for his healing, Heather's healing, and for strength & energy for you as you help to take care of him. Blessings to you all!!
