One More for the Nite...

Got back a little while ago from the hospital. We got there about 3:30ish and left at 7:30ish... The kids did pretty good, as good as they can in a hospital room. ;o)
Dad looked really good, he's still yellow, but I guess he looks better than he did. He had a huge lunch and supper. He walked down to eat with the kids and I and Gramma. He drank a cup of coffee and helped Skylar eat her noodles, so he's feeling better! Seems like he's always getting her to finish her supper!!! :o)
He told me that he has punched his little morphine, but only 7 times today, so, not too bad.
They rescheduled his Goshen appointment to Thursday at 9:45. He was supposed to be going tomorrow, but since he's still there. Even if he would come home tomorrow, it would be way to much for him! Just getting home and getting a butt load of info, they would be lost... So he sees the doc then, and then they will hang out in Goshen area until 2:30 when they see the dietitian They won't get to see the other 2, but that's ok. I think that will be enough info for one day. Then they will make another appointment to see the other 2 I am guessing...
He's on an antibiotic through his IV. They asked Dr Gize if he could put a port in and Dr Gize said, I don't have the authority to make that decision. Since he had already transferred all of dad's paperwork, he is now considered a patient of Goshen now, so he can't make that decision. Even though they haven't seen dad yet. he considered a patient. So...
Oh, mom and dad have been drinking the sage tea since he got home from the hospital and they did blood work the other day. His liver enzymes are looking better they said. Must be the tea! :O)
So hopefully he will get to come home tomorrow, but we aren't sure. Since he has to have that antibiotic through IV... Mom asked the people at Goshen if they put in ports, and they do, so they may do that Thursday? I really don't know.
Mom is back home for the nite. She will go back tomorrow.
I took some pics today at the hospital, will try to get them uploaded tonite or tomorrow...
