Friday Movie Night
Mark is tired, his reservoir of patience is pretty dry. The staff knows he's a charmer, but the charm is on minimum right now. Many questions are answered with just a shrug.
I just want to carry him away to a happy place and make it all go away. This is a helpless place to be for a parent.
Wendi went home to rest and recover, so it is just Mark and me for now. His gradual recovery is slower than he'd like, contributing to his discouragement. On the positive side, after a brief recurrence of nausea, he's eating a little better now. He also had one of his remaining two IVs removed, so that's one less tether.
Hopefully there is more tangible progress tomorrow to help lift Mark's mood. All your offers of support, prayers, and so much assistance from our friends with transportation and childcare, has been amazing and leaves us at a loss for words. God bless, and please keep the other families and staff here at the PICU in your thoughts.
