Hello mamas, hope you all had a nice solstice & that the rest of your holiday season is good as well. Today Jon had surgery to have a tracheostomy & a gtube put in. He seemed much more comfortable when we saw him and that was just an hour after the operations. The nurse told me she'd 'go get a cuppa coffee' when I asked her how to get permission to take a photo of him (I really wanted a decent close up shot & not a hastily taken pic with a cell phone ya know?), which I thought was nice of her
I'm mailing it to his dad so he can see how much more comfortable he looks now.
It's looking like a morning road trip for me.. i have to drive to north florida (about an hour ish away) to have a look at the top choice hospital that has a spot for him. If all looks good, they really want to xfer him tomorrow afternoon so that they can get ALL teh staff in to meet him (and me as well). From what I understand I can stay then night when he's admitted, so I'll end up making 2 trips down there but won't come back till the next day. It kinda sucks because it will be hard for me to be there every day since it's that far
but I'll be there every day I can until I have to go.
He had a few moments today where there was definitely 'expression' behind those eyes today. They didn't last long, but it's a huge improvement over last week! His nurse was pretty pleased, and the nurse today is a bit of a stiff upper lip kinda lady, so that's saying something I think
Keep those good healing vibes coming mamas, I have a feeling he's trying to push past the fog and come back to us.
