The GI doc who did surgery said Ryan can go home tonight or Tuesday. Then the hospitalist came by and said he has to stay til Thursday. So….Ryan isn’t coming home yet. I’m kind of glad they are being conservative and keeping him longer to make sure everything is working well. I have a feeling they are more worried about him than they are letting on. He has lost a terrible amount of weight and is very weak. Plus with his cecostomy and the permanent loss of his large intestine working as it should, he’s got some issues.
Travis is there now and I will go up for the evening on Tuesday with the kids so we can all be together. Then Wednesday we will trade places and I’ll stay until he is discharged Thursday. It’s like performing a complicated dance trying to figure out who needs to be where and when. But we are pros by now.
The kids and I are going to decorate for Christmas tonight which they love to do. Please keep us in your prayers as we all muddle through the next few days. Love to you all!
