There wasn’t any word this week on Rudy’s sleep study results but we did finally receive the 3.0 Ped Shiley trach (1 of 4 ordered) from crApria that was originally ordered on February 22 when Rudy’s trach was downsized. It only took 3 months, 6 phone calls and about 5+ hours of my time this time – well done crApria!! Oh man, don’t get me started, but I am so grateful for Rolf’s ability to procure enough trachs during the last hospital stay scavenger hunt to get us by. We really are blessed to have so little to rant about but dealing with Apria makes up for any headache-deficit we may have!!
On a much sweeter note…Rudy is perking up and acting like his bright self again. He’s still congested but it’s definitely better and he is sleeping better at night. After another full week this past week, the house is quiet this weekend with both big boys gone on a teen retreat at Point Loma in San Diego. We are missing them but we’re having some fun of our own with bbqs and, of course, watching the Indy 500 on Sunday!!!!
Okay, so this video really doesn’t have anything to do with “Rudys Beat” but I had to post it. Wilson enlisted the help of his brothers for an English assignment…he produced an anti-smoking public service announcement and the look on Rudy’s face when the boys walk up to him in the video is priceless. It’s another 4 minute video so it’ll take a bit to buffer…
Happy Memorial Day Everyone…I hope your weekend is filled with bbqs, gorgeous weather and a peaceful heart (don’ t think about Apria, don’t think about Apria, don’t think about Apria) too. 🙂
