When I first got there he wasn't looking to good. They had done that procedure where they put this stuff into the tube they have going into his lung, and they insert something they call talc. But when they did that, it really hurt, he had a lot of pain and when I got there they were putting another IV in, since the one he had, had to be removed. Then they finally were able to give him some morphine. He would doze off but didn't sleep very long at a time, maybe ten minutes. Finally he was able to eat some lunch and I think he was starting to feel a little better. His face wasn't nearly as red as it was when I got there and he was cooling down. After that procedure he got very hot, I don't know if it was the stuff they inserted that caused that to happen or what.
We both dozed off for a little while, then our one daughter stopped back by to pick me up. By the time we left, he was looking 100% better and I'm sure he was feeling better also. The talc is suppose to make things in there stick together and fill in any leaks, don't know how it works and don't care, as long as it works.
He still has the tube in his lung, he's also hooked up to some sort of monitor for his heart, he still has a catheter in him, plus an IV. I'm sure he'll still be hooked up tomorrow, but I think by Friday they will start removing some of the items. I probably won't get over to see him tomorrow, but I told him we'll call him and put everyone on speaker phone, so he can hear all the confusion and know what he's missing. LOL
They'll be ten of us here for dinner tomorrow. We'll eat around 1pm. I cheated this year, I bought my pies on the way home this evening. I do have to bake a couple of them, one is already baked. One daughter is making her mac and cheese and a cheese ball, one is making hot rolls and party mix, one is bringing Corn Pudding, one is making Sweet Potato Casserole and also Scalloped Potatoes. I'm making the old stand by Green Bean Casserole, Stuffing and roasting the Turkey. Plus we have several different kinds of cranberry sauce. You have to have cranberries. Well that's it for tonight. Like I said he was looking a lot better. I did take the small camera along and tried to take a photo, but I'm not good at doing that. Now I'll have to wait for the daughter to show me how I get it off the camera. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes, keep them coming we appreciate it very much. Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
