The worst is over....

I think Rickie went through the worst of his virus at home...he was admitted yesterday and they did the usual, blood work, PFT's, chest x-ray, and accessing his port. They have him on two different antibiotics. They have to check his blood levels to make sure they don't give him too much of one--because it can cause hearing loss. Don't want that!

He's on droplet alert because he has a virus....no leaving the room and anyone coming in has to gown up and wear a mask.

The good news is--they might let me take him home and continue his IV meds at home. YAY!

As some of you know, sleeping in the hospital is not conducive to sleeping. The downside would be they wouldn't let me take him home until he's down with the round of meds! *ugh*

Just thought I'd let you know--he's doing a lot better already.

Thanks for all of your support.
Life is good!

So glad to hear that he is doing better! Praying that he is discharged soon. I can not even imagine how difficult all these hospital stays must be for your family.

Hang in there!

The trooper is at it again!

What you say - hospitals not conducive to sleeping? Pi-shaw!

I hope he's home sooner than you think he might be! Home is better for the heart & the head. Faster healing there.

Great news, though, for sure.

I am just now getting all your updates, as I have been crazy this week. I am glad to hear that Ricky is doing better.

Go for a run and clear your head! Put your ipod on and just zone out!
