It has been a good day. Dennis got up and sat in a chair late in the morning and did OK with that but it did cause some vomiting. They gave him something to settle his stomach. He has eaten a little today and even did a lap around the ICU unit. We are waiting right now for them to come and get him and move him out of ICU to the regular unit. He is very tired at this point. Some of that is due to the medications and also residual from the anesthesia. They say he will be tired for awhile.
Brooke really was having a rough day today so Karen, my sister, picked her up from day care and came into the hospital. She saw Daddy briefly and then we went and had something to eat together while Dennis rested. After spending a little more time with Daddy, she and I went and talked about what she was thinking. It was a good chance to reassure her that Daddy is doing well and that we would be honest with her as to how he progresses.
Please continue to pray for all of us.
