another saturday night
Tom had a great day...up out of bed, lots of family visits, a talk on the phone with the little Burke ladies last night. Huge improvement from last Sat's post. Tom is still unable to eat or drink but he is having a modified barium swallow on Monday in the hopes that that will change. He is allowed to swab his mouth from time to time but the nurses have warned that his water is not to be within arms reach of him because he gets a little to liberal with the frequency of using them. We are hoping for a move out of the ICU tomorrow or Monday morning. He is on the road to a great recovery! He was sleeping soundly when I left tonight which is another huge improvement because his sleep cycle has been all messed up. I am hoping he will have sweet dreams and sleep throughout a good part of the night. Talk to you later.
