Long Johns & Empires

Lots of ups and downs today… We are still in ICU, apparently waiting for a bed to down grade into. Earlier today Drew, with the help of two Physical Therapists and a walker, sat in a special large chair for an hour or two. It took all of his effort to stay seated upright. It was good because it’s helping him to use muscles that he doesn’t use lying in bed. But it made him really spaced out and nauseous. He has been on antibiotics & battling a fever which appears to be under control. Then Drew slept… and slept some more. 

John, Julia and I are sitting in Drew’s room, they read as I work on building my pinterest empire. Drew wakes up from a nap, looks around and randomly asks if there is a Dunkin Donuts around here. Then proceeds to request a ‘long john’, which is a chocolate long donut, and a Boston crème. So funny! John and Julia said he used to eat them as a child. I am sure a psychologist is reading this (perhaps my father) and thinking that this makes perfect sense- he is reverting back to childhood tendencies. Love it. I will gladly buy him as many ‘long johns’ as he can eat once he is up for food again.

Drew is out for an MRI of his back right now. I don’t like being away from him for long, hopefully he’ll be back soon!
