Hi everyone – this is Rich again. I’m still doing the typing…
“The ‘I’m Hot’ in the title is a reference to the t-shirt that Rich got me that I wore today. Everyone on my floor thinks it’s funny, but we discovered when walking around the rest of the hospital that most people just give me a wide berth – especially in elevators. But the big news today is that I’m feeling a lot better! I showered and a nurse washed my hair and I’m about to take my second walk of the day. I’m also getting much more accustomed to life as a muppet, which is just a more comfortable way to be when you have a bottle cap attached to your eye. My room continues to be the “party room” according to one nurse who stopped by to look at the lights and have some candy. And speaking of stopping by, Dr Pulido came by again this evening to check on me. I’ve said it before but he really does give the impression when you are with him that you are his only patient. He pulled up a chair, got comfortable and didn’t leave until all of our questions were answered. He’s a good guy and I’m very grateful.
I’m really missing my kids. Tessa had set up FaceTime for me on my iPad and phone but it’s really hard on my eyes, and the wifi here is lousy, so we’re just sticking to phone calls right now. My parents are taking great care of them so Rich can be here with me. Looking forward to some visitors tomorrow and still enjoying all of the messages and texts that Rich has been reading me.
It’s Friday night but apparently there are “rules” here about alcohol consumption – so someone, please, have an adult beverage for me! Happy Friday to all and to all a good night…”
