After a good workout, doesn’t everyone need a little break? So it goes with Neil. No balloon games today. He did get to sit in a chair for four hours for a change of pace. It kind of messed with his breathing a little since he’s been on his back for over three weeks, but he looked pretty comfortable. He had to wear an oxygen mask for a while. Now he’s back to the little tubes in his nose. I think he has slept most of the day.
One less tube to deal with now—they’ve taken him off his IV fluids. All his nutrients and fluids come through his feeding tube. Everyone is working toward getting him ready for rehab. They’re saying maybe tomorrow or Tuesday. We’ll let you know when we do.
