Home, Smoky Home.

Drama seems to surround Rudy even if he’s oblivious to it.  Trish made it home after an uneventful trip and Rudy has been asleep almost continually since he’s been home.  We had a good visit from Jane, our visiting nurse and she gave him a thorough checkover and made sure we were all clear on the discharge instructions.  We’ve been giving him all of his feeds through the G-tube at OT Nicole’s suggestion to just let him relax.

Rudy’s brothers and sister are excited to have him home, but this evening we’ve been focusing a good bit of attention outside the house tonight.  The wind shifted and the fires are headed our way.  We don’t seem to be in any danger, but the air is such that we’ve had to close the windows making for a rare night where we wished we had air conditioning–or maybe even long for the uncomfortably cold climate in the ICU.  More than anything, it’s tough to go up on the roof, see the flames and think of friends’ addresses within the rapidly growing evacuation zones.  Gonna be a long night, but Ithink we might be losing sleep over something other than Rudy.
