The rest of the week has been super busy. Joey’s been out of the hospital on day passes quite a bit; motoring around slowly, but surely. He dragged me to a movie (getting out of the seats at the theatre was interesting…thankfully there was a helpful usher handy and I learned some physio moves earlier in the day) and dinner.
Other exciting news: the transplant team said that as soon as Joey’s mobility improves enough that he is able function more independently, he can get discharged from the hospital! (I.e. getting out of seats, off of toilets, being able to do any stairs). We did a trial night at home yesterday, but it doesn’t seem like he’s quite ready yet. Joey should get more mobile once he gets more of this fluid off (he has about 25-30 extra pounds sitting in the lower half of his body). We’ll talk to the team in the morning and see what they think.
So that’s the score for today. Hope everybody has been having a fabulous weekend!
