He’s Awake!

Thursday, Aug 21 @ 11:51am

Alma, Renee’, and I are back at the ICU at Providence.  Alma was telling us that last night (around 7:30pm) she came back over to see Mr. Fix-it.  He was doing well.  The ventilator had been removed and he was awake and coherent.  She said that his first words to her were, “I won’t be able to chop the firewood for you.”  She responded, “No, but there are dishes that need washing.”  They laughed.

Alma said Mr. Fix-it was moving and even reached for his own drink of water.  The plan for him for today is to get him up and walking.  He will also get his first meal since Tuesday.  If all goes well, he should be moved to the Cardiac Care Unit later today.

Alma has gone back to see Mr. Fix-it.  Renee’ and I are holding down the fort in the ICU waiting room.  The plan for the day is to play canasta in between visits with Mr. Fix-it.  It’s gonna be a long day.  But, at least it won’t be as stress-filled as yesterday.

Thanks for your continued prayers.
