I spoke with my daughter-in-law a few minutes ago. Jim is doing OK so far. I would try to describe what went on with his broken leg, but it's all over my head and pretty complicated.
They're at the stage now where they got Jim off morphine and onto something else. Well, the first drug they tried made him sick. The one he's on now puts him to sleep. But this is something everyone has to go through, I guess, if they're in pain.
He sat up today in a chair (but was not comfortable!).
Typical male ( just like his dad), he won't call the nurses when he needs assistance. Sheesh.
When you are praying, be sure and remember Jim's wife, who has to go to work tomorrow, and feels guilty for leaving him and going home tonight. We wives all know the feeling, don't we?
The doctor said they're on guard for pneumonia, since Jim's a smoker.
So far, so good.
