Movin' on .....over??

We have finally moved from the ICU!!  They moved dad this morning to a step down ward...same floor, just down the hall....but not ICU!!  It will be good to have a new room, with new scenery!! 

They have been giving Dad some sleeping pills to help him rest at night, and he seems to be very groggy and almost incoherant during the day.  They are going to try and not give him the sleeping pill tonight and see if they can start to regulate his sleeping naturally. 

Today has been a slower day.  Since he has been pretty tired, they havn't really pushed him to walk yet.  He did do a floor pedal for about 20 minutes this moring, and he is now awake enough that they are going to try and get him up to walk. 

Hopefully, tomorrow will start better, and he will be more awake in the morning!  He is anxious to get moving, and is constantly excersizing his legs while in bed!  He wants to get strong and he wants to get out of here!

Lots of love from Boston!


  1. I'm so proud of you Dave! Keep on working hard! LOVE YOU!

    wish I could be there to cheer you on, but just know my love and prayers are headed in your direction. Had lovely church meetings today, thought about you while we were studing, I hope the weather is pretty out there,old man spring just doesn't seem to want to come out and stay, maybe by the time you get home it will be beautiful, keep up the awesome work you are doing, we so miss you and want you here.
