Monday morning hospital update

Factoids from the beginning of Week 2 in the hospital:

  • It’s 10:15 a.m., and still no word on the Humira.
  • The doc said yesterday that he would be in around 11 a.m. today. I will update you if there’s anything to tell (maybe that he will discharge Bruce if all goes well with the Humira???).
  • Bruce’s last bag of IV food will run out in the next hour or two, and he’ll probably be off of all IVs after that. It’s a sign they’re getting ready to kick him out. That doesn’t guarantee he’ll go home today, but they’re weaning him off stuff …

The challenge once we’re home will be to keep his weight up. I have trouble getting him to eat at home. When I call him from work, the last thing I usually say is, “Eat!” Left unsupervised, he would starve to death. I’ve often said, “I live to eat, and Bruce eats to live.” That crazy skinny man!

I don’t get it. Do you?
