Yes, today was a good day. Billy and I went up to the hospital together this morning at 6:30...after finally getting a good nights sleep. When we got there, his son was awake and somewhat alert, and talking! Yes, the breathing tube is out! He was pretty stoned from the pain meds, and telling everyone he was stoned but that was okay cuz it's legal...lmao!
He still had a smaller tube in his nose, mostly for drainage, and a foley which he finally convinced the doctor to take out by telling him it was broken. Don't ask...I wasn't there but I don't blame him. Anytime I've had surgery, I raise hell til they take that damn thing out!

Anyways, they finally took the tube out of his nose, which made it easier for him to breathe...and also gave us a chance to clean him up a little. Ya know...we cut his hair the night before the surgery, but didn't think to shave his little bit of mustache! Yea...he had stuff stuck to it, and we finally gave up trying to get it off. Just put some soapy water on it to soften it up a little.

So he's taking in clear liquids now, and will probably move up to regular food tomorrow. He's also out of PICU by now and in a private room on the adolescent ward. Which means...no screaming three year old getting tubes put in their ears for a roomate!

This will be the last update here, he'll be home tuesday and most of my time will be spent getting the house straightened up when I'm not at the hospital giving them a break. I'll probably post something on the other site, or call Nomi and let her know if anything changes.

Thanks again for all the thoughts and prayers. His spirits are good and his sense of humor is back. It's going to be a rough recovery, and a long summer, but he's well on his way.

Comet...I'm no treasure. I'm a mom...who could've just as easily been in the same situation. That and the fact that I've come to love this kid very much over the last year and a half. Any differences that the adults might have had in the past have been put to rest so that his needs come first.

Good news.
Things take time,
and some things take longer than they should.
Post-op is a mess.
Glad it's over.Whew.
But the trauma is huge and does not go away for awhile.
The surgeon for my biggest op said there would be times
when I would suddenly feel totally faint, that this is a normal effect of
general anesthesia, that it could last up to three months, and that when it happened
... not if but when ... wherever I was i should sit down immediately on the floor,
on the ground, wherever, and wait until it passed over. I did, and it did.

Thanks guys.

Sorry if I pressured you in to blogging! I was just thinking about y'all and wondering if things were okay...

I'm no treasure.

First, I've seen you "in action"...you are a treasure (if not a fucking drill sergeant, cheese-n-rice you're bossy! jk!) You are in a precarious position and you are handling it so very well; I know many people who would find themselves struggling with jealousy and worrying more about being excluded than how they can help. Give yourself some credit, hon! You absolutely ARE a treasure!

Now, can I side-track just a bit here about that man of yours...Not quite 2 years ago, I read a blog he wrote - before he met you or me, before his life seem to truly change - where he was wondering out loud if he could ever make up his past "transgressions" of not being a good dad...could he ever gain (regain) the kind of love and respect any father wants from his kids - his sons. He wondered if it was too late... I hope he doesn't wonder that anymore because from everything I've seen - in writing, pictures, and first-hand up close and personal - he is as awesome a dad as he is a boyfriend/fiance and friend!

Okay, I'm done being sappy...for now.

I love you guys!!!

Oh, and I forgot to say, I saw that they DO love and respect him...what's more, they love and respect you, too, Jeanie. Teens might not always show it, but when someone new comes in and can feel it, it's there. Y'all are a real family!!!
