Karen, Brenden, Jaxson, Pete and I went to see Chris tonight. Brenden was excited to go see Chris so he could tell him that he lost his second tooth while eating an apple today. I’m elated to report that Chris is feeling and looking so much better! I think that’s the best I’ve seen him look in weeks. All of the doctors and nurses who saw him today told him they think he’s finally turned the corner. He looked good, he sounded good, and he’s anxious to start eating again just so he can get out of the hospital. Unfortunately, I still don’t think they’re going to start him on food for a few days. They really just want him to rest up now…which seems somewhat ironic since it seems like it’s the night nurses that keep waking him up! He said one of the nurses was all excited and woke him up last night just to tell him his Twins won (which he thought was very sweet and funny). Although I didn’t clear it with Chris, I think it’s safe to say the visitor and phone call ban is no longer in effect. Thanks for all of your thoughts, prayers, blog comments, and well wishes…it’s been a tough week and it means so much that so many people are supporting Chris and his family.
p.s. Pat – the big green spiders were a huge hit with the boys! Jaxson brought one home and said that he’s going to put it under his bed while he sleeps so it doesn’t “freak him out”.
