Day 2 Post. Okay 3

Really day 3, if you count the big day as 1.

There is an ongoing debate on whether day 2 or 3 is harder. I think from Carl’s perspective day 2 wins. It was not all bad but he had some really painful bouts and couldn’t get fully comfortable. Day 3 includes more activities that are tiring. But in the morning they removed the chest tubes which got rid of the most intense pain source, or so it seems.

Still in ICU for another day, but after addition of more bionics tomorrow morning we are hoping for a move to the regular floor.

Wow, I just looked at the picture and for a moment he reminded me of my uncle Don. Which is funny (to me) because several years ago there were pictures of Carl that reminded me of my cousin Mac, Don’s son. And of course Carl is only related by marriage.

My schedule has fallen into a bit of a pattern. Wake up, water the raspberries and whatever else there is time for, make some food to take, jump in the car to get to the hospital before shift change (when you get the scoop), hang out while trying to stay out of the way, watch some soccer and maybe baseball, leave late for home, eat something and fall asleep until the alarm goes off again. Repeat. I will undoubtedly get this down just as it all changes. Progress!

And it’s a scorcher today in the real world. Luckily for us, by the time we head home the temperature is supposed to be much more Seattle like.🌦

    I’ve been wanting to connect but felt a little weird doing it on your blahg and didn’t want to pester you with texts or something. But Carl looks pretty darn good!!! So glad he is able to get up and about but of course, that’s what “they” try to do post-surgery nowadays, a good thing in my “humble” opinion.

    I have always thought that Carl resembled Mac a bit, as weird as that is. I hear it in his speech patterns too.

    ❤ ❤ ❤ to both of you guys and I sincerely hope you make it out here for Rey/Becca's wedding but be safe! I'm sure we can skype you in if need be.

    I’m glad he’s doing well and looking good. Did he have to shave off his beard? I barely recognized him. Make sure to take care of yourself too as you’re rushing around. It’s stressful to have a spouse in the hospital.
