Friday night. Rob is doing well — even though he’s in pain, he keeps a positive outlook. The pain management group is working with him, trying to get the various meds and dosages worked out. After the surgery, pain meds were being infused through an epidural, but to minimize risk of infection, it could only stay in place for 24 hours. That was working fairly well, so Rob wasn’t happy about its removal! But, his spirits are good, and he will fight his way through these days of pain, I’m sure. He was in the special-care-unit last night, but was moved into a room this afternoon.
We will obviously be back at the hospital with him tomorrow. Fanester and Joan are scheduled to arrive tomorrow, mid-day, so there will be no shortage of company or entertainment for him!
We continue to marvel at God’s goodness and graciousness to Rob and to all of us!
