Nothing much to report. Ben longed for water all day and tried to find ways around their rules (i.e. he asked if they had a microwave he could use to melt his popsicle to drink it!). He was told that he had to have a bowel movement before they would remove the nasal gastric tube and allow him to drink. Luckily, he accomplished that tonight! Now, we’re just waiting for the next step so homeboy can DRINK!!!!
Kim and Dave were happy to have a bit of time together away from the hospital today. Mary Carole (Kim’s mom) relieved them for lunch, so they were able to leave the hospital and have a touch of normal life for a moment.
