Dec 17, 2017 Nick posting



It was 32 degrees, cloudy, and calm when I took Colin out at 7:45.

Update from yesterday’s trip to the hospital. Bob was just getting ready to go down for a chest CT when I arrived. The doctor had removed the chest tube on Friday but fluid was back in his lungs again yesterday. I did visit with him while they were getting things ready for transport.
He was breathing on his own and recognized me, nodding yes when I asked him a few questions. He mouths words but I nor the nurses can figure out what he is trying to say. They gave him a pad and pen but he could not write. That may be because he was trying to use his left hand because the right one has the oxygen sensor on it or right now just cannot write due to all he has been through.
The doctor came by after Bob left and spent at lest 20 minutes talking with me and answering questions. Bob has been breathing on his own though they still have the trach in for support if needed. They lung infection is back with a vengeance and is causing all the problems. The doctor is going to put in at one and maybe two chest tubes this morning.
