We are now transferred out of ICU and Derek is resting. Dad Sauder headed home, and there's just a few more tubes to come out...drainage from incisions and cath and iv antibiotics. Jello for breakfast, and no nausea thus far. We are glad he is taking pain pills by mouth just fine. He sat up for a couple hours already this morning and came up a floor in a wheelchair to his room 746 on the 9th floor of St. Mary's hospital.
Derek is talkative and feels pretty good overall.
Tomorrow his brothers are planning to come and my parents. It's mild here, 40 degrees, we are glad for good travel roads.
Psalm 103. Especially verse 2 meant a lot to me this morning. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.
