It's the day after surgery and I'm back at the hospital. Ammon is still intubated and I'll admit to a little concern. They have been suctioning him out because he has some fluid in the lungs but if his blood gases are good enough, they hope to take the tube out so he can breathe on his own and hopefully cough up the junk. He has been very alert and makes hand gestures (thumbs up, thumbs down, etc.)
The reason I say I'm back at the hospital is because I left here about 9:00 p.m. last night to get some much needed sleep. I am staying at the Ronald McDonald House, but not the main one on South Temple. They have purchased a second house about two blocks east. This morning when I got up and went outside, I realized that Geoffrey & Sarah's school that they used to attend was directly across the street! So I took a photo just for them.
In order to stay in the Ronald McDonald House, you have to have a social worker from a hospital refer you. My friend, Janet Jackson (now Tate), referred us. Once you get a spot, you can keep it as long as you want. It only costs $10.00/night to stay in a really classy place. They have a kitchen and you can cook your own breakfast, fix lunches, etc. All you have to do is clean up after yourself. I stayed at the second house and it is a truly gorgeous home that has the feel of a bed and breakfast. They have sleep number beds - don't think I would purchase one but it was a fun experience. Anyway, here are the photos so Geoff and Sarah can see their old school.
Sorry Guys - I can't move the photos - Jess told me to try control Z and Control V but it still doesn't work on this computer.
