Day 38: First Rough Night... done and John is doing a little better today. One of the hardest things for him at the moment is breathing against a normal sized and rather ouchy abdomen, but once they moved him over and let me snuggle him in the chair his anxiety level dropped and he's actually being able to get some sleep on his morphine, instead of fighting it and being so scared. He's already discontinued his own catheter, and he will get the wound drains removed today as they aren't working correctly. He has to keep the NG tube one more day but it should be leaving us tomorrow, this will also help his anxiety level because he just hates this thing. They've been able to turn his oxygen down and I suspect he won't need it but for maybe another day if that. For now he is cuddled up with dad.
