It’s hard to believe today was Rudy’s original due date…my oh my, his birthday seems a lifetime ago.
We spent the day at his side watching numbers carefully and quietly with the children in tow in the morning and then with a string of longtime friends in the afternoon. Rudy’s status is stable this evening. His blood pressure fluctuated most of the day and he did battle a low-grade fever but no major dips like yesterday. The kids got to see him and talk to him while he was awake and alert which was fun for them. I was happy for the little bit of time they had with him.
So, here we are at the start of another week…I’m not sure I have the energy to relay details tonight about Rudy’s condition…in general, it remains the same and although the long wait for “real” progress is wearisome, we remain hopeful…hopeful that this week will hold more milestones for Rudy. Speaking of milestones, this coming week holds two special celebrations in the life of our family…our 16th wedding anniversary on the 7th and the Rescue Mission’s Drug and Alcohol Recovery Program Graduation on the 8th! Wouldn’t it be cool to add “Rudy breathing on his own” to the list?!!!!
