UPDATE; (By Jan 10)
Hello Everyone, Scott is doing a little better. He is on oxygen due to too little oxygen in his blood system: they have found out that his COPD is worse than they had figured and maybe that is reducing his absorption of oxygen. So they have started him on a steroid to reduce inflammation in his lungs. His leg still hurts and swells. He has more meetings with his Doctors tomorrow, but he hopes that he’ll also be released tomorrow afternoon. He has been stuck and re-stuck with needles and hooked up to almost everything. the staff have been super nice to him, but the food is skimpy….. I think he gets a few extras…. 🙂 He is ready to come home. Church is ready also…. (his dog). He misses being near his computer and chatting with all of you. I see him daily and talk to him many times a day, but still miss him,,,,, strange feeling for so much silence. I want him to come home also but only if it is the best thing for him. I want him to get much better. I want him to be well and strong. So, he might be clicking out a ‘hello’ to all of you tomorrow evening.
I’m headed back to the hospital this morning. I suffered another PE last night so I got to go. I can barely keep my head up. Jan10 will post updates if I am admitted, but I am pretty sure that is going to happen unfortunately. Well, there are good sides to it. People to chat with. Attractive nurses.
Hopefully they will put the Greater Kurdistan project on hold til I get back, but probably not. You know how they are.
You guys take care. I’ll see you when I get back.
