Looks like today’s the day for Will to leave the ICU and head to the Heart and Kidney Unit (aka, ‘The Floor’). This is great news, though a little disconcerting for us in our 6-week dependence on one-on-one or two-on-one nursing care (our son will be sharing a nurse with three other patients) as well as full monitoring of cardio-pulmonary functions (they’ll be weaning the parents off of these monitors).
So I’m packing a bag to stay the night with Will. Interesting fact about me: I pack books before clothes. Or a toothbrush.
