Good Morning All:

 

Our good buddy, John, is already SITTING UP IN A CHAIR and entertaining Shelley this morning.

Just keep those prayers (and pain meds) coming.

I will bet he will post on here himself before too long !

    Thanks for the update, Ingrid....Facebook is glitching me today, and I can't see anything on it so I can't keep up there.

    Yay!!!...

    Glad he is sitting up and full of cheer...LOL.  He's probably wanting to bust out of there soon and get himself out on the boat.  I hope he realizes the fish will still be biting when he gets out of there...Laughing

    Fish

    There will be plentiful fish. Their nemesis is taking a short break to lull them suckers into a false sense of security. Hope you got a big freezer for that next catch John. Thinking of you both, Gary.

    4/24/14 Update

    Well John had some trouble with some nasty B of a nurse  and did not get his pain meds on time overnight so he had a rough night and morning.

    They had moved him from the regular ICU to a secondary overflow ICU (probably because he looked so darn good !).

    But when Shelley got there, she found John's doctor and got things done.

    John is now in a private room and feeling much better.  Don't you hate when they think they can change the doctor's orders and NOT give your meds on time after major surgery.

    He is resting comfortably now

    I'm glad to hear

    he's feeling pretty chipper....bitchy nurse and all.  But that's our John Laughing.
