Sawyer and Brandon are dressed identical in OSU gear and we're having a "game day" right here in the hospital.
All four of us (Ridge, Sawyer, myself, Brandon) stayed here @ the hospital last night. It was the first night all 4 of us have been under the same roof in over 5 weeks. It was wonderful. I'm not saying it went off w/o a hitch, but it was wonderful. I think we will try it again tomorrow night as well. Tonight I get the night off and I'm taking Sawyer home, then to church tomorrow, then we'll come back for some more hospital time.
Ridge is still doing well; we have a wagon in our room now and we can unhook Ridge from his monitors, but not his IV, and we have taken him outside some. He can also play on a blanket on the floor. He can't be unhooked for a long time, but for some time. He did have a full skeletal survey Thursday night around 10 pm and we found out the results- he has some spots on the bones in his arms and in his legs. I think they are assuming these are related to the MLT but the doctors do not seem concerned by them. We are waiting, I guess, to find out if they are really MLT related or if we need further bone density scans. It's kind of frustrating that they've found something else. I mean, I'm glad they found it, or whatever, but it's just frustrating that it's there period.
Ridge is waking up, so I better sign off. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend of football (everyone who knows me knows that i haven't watched a second of the sport today...nor will i. but it is on here in our hospital room....and here i am blogging.)
check ya later-
