Where’s the Doctor Parade?

We all had a great night’s sleep.  Rudy is experiencing lots of something he hasn’t before–peace and quiet.  Not sure what he’s thinking, but he is calmly looking around a lot in these new surroundings.  He’s breathing well and just drank down his whole bottle this morning.  It’s almost ten and I think he’s wondering why the morning doctor parade (rounds) is late.  Hope they aren’t too sad down at UCLA.

Trish and I are getting ourselves set up here with Rudy’s equipment, medicines and now understand why hospitals throw so much away–much easier to toss things and get a new one out of supply next time than clean and store.  But we’ll get the system down.

We so appreciated Greg Lawler coming down and taking pictures most of the day through discharge, the drive and arrival home–I think some people were wondering if we were famous enough to have a papparazzo running around us and snapping away.  Can’t wait to see the pictures, but he was nice enough to post a great one to get us started.  While you’re at Greg’s site, Livy fans might want to check out his pictures of her ice skating trip.  She’s the one with form like Sonja Henie and teeth like a Detroit Red Wing.  Nice to know talented people–thanks, Greg.

  11. Second time commenter but a fan of Rudy’s since he was first introduced to me on Katie’s blog….I am so overwhelmingly happy that Rudy is home – what an incredible journey you have all been on…..There are so many Rudy fans out here who are just so ecstatic by the events of the past few days (and the past 6 months!!) What a wonderful feeling to know that you are all together at HOME !!!!!! Go Geylings Go!!!!!!!!
    Peaceful days ahead!!

  12. Trish, just wanted you to know I made a BRIEF trip to the helipad last night for all the RIGHT reasons! I miss my regular Rudy visits but wanted to thank Him who sent you home. Love to all, Nurse Joyce

  13. Sorry I didn’t get by to say good-bye but that means Rudy was discharged faster than any of us could have imagined. I know you didn’t want to think that he might make it home for Easter because of previous disappointments but Praise God look what happened!!! Take care and lots of hugs and love to you all.
