Colin is not well at all, and is still feeling very nauseous and extra sensitive. He is finding it difficult to talk, and is hot and cold and clammy, and there is nothing I can do to ease his pain. He is still not eating – has had nothing at all today, didn’t want the fruit or his dinner, and doesn’t want to drink at all. He is no danger of dehydrating as he is on several different drips, but I am still a bit worried.
There is a bright side though – he showed me today that he can open and close his knees very slightly. He is still determined to win every day, and I know he will. I am just sad for this little setback. He gets very little sleep in the ICU as there is constant noise, banging, clanging, shouting, alarms, phones ringing, etc. He is counting the days until he can go back to his place in rehab. I hope he will get better and better so he can go back to where is happier.
Today I am grateful for being able to drive to go see my love, and I am also grateful I can sleep anywhere. Today I slept in the chair in the waiting room between the visits – if I go home in between I get to sit for about 10 minutes before I have to go back. I don’t know if I was snoring, but I don’t care. LOL
