Success Again

Everything looks good. Scott has tone (pulses) in his foot. They evacuated a basketball sized hematoma and repacked everything in his thigh. He's got an ace wrap from ankle to groin and they are keeping sand bags on his leg until Kate graduates college.

Everyone is feeling really positive. Dr. Chad as usual cautions me that with Scott we never quite know what to expect.

Just got back to see Scott, I'm watching him rest right now. Poor guy came out of surgery on a vent. He tells me right away he can't breathe, which sounds really strange when he's got something breathing for him. Lauren (our most fantastic nurse for the last 2 days) and Dr. Ben took my advice and turned off the vent. Turns out the vent forcing Scott to breathe was what was causing his issues. He's now resting comfortably with a blanket over his head. He looks like the Emperor from Star Wars. Don't worry folks I took a picture that I'll be sharing with all of you later.

I've gotten quite a few pictures today actually, with real camera and not my phone. Dr. Ben, who is now following this blog (HI Ben - we pink puffy heart you) even posed for a picture. See that's a good dr., he can keep up with my nutty ways.

Things are looking pretty good from here for now. As always, one eye to the sky - that fucking shoe hurts.

OK, So weird... I was just reading and checking in on you. Mark and I cleaned house today and as I got up a piece of paper fell from my lap. It's an old fortune from a cookie. It reads Courage conquers all things it even gives strength to the body. I had to pass it on.
