Post-surgery update

Although Mark is occasionally hallucinating or forgetting conversations mid-sentence, some effects that were not entirely unexpected, he is also a little self-aware of it. He was a little put out with himself for mistaking Mom for a tank (he played a lot of tank video games during our last stay).

However, he is high functioning enough to ask for and watch Dr. Who on Mom's Kindle. And c'mon, Dr. Who is just strange enough to help blur the lines of reality, right?

OK, in case you want to drop by and see him (thanks, ladies and gents, he'll be here all week!), we are at Randall Children's Hospital in Portland, room 511. PICU and seasonal flu rules dictate no more than two adult visitors at any one time (including parents), and no one under 18. If you come as a large group, we can rotate visitors in and out, and there is a play lounge for kids available.

Time to try and get some sleep....

  1. I know this is merely a step in the journey... but it was a big one, courageously and faithfully taken. I am so very proud of you all. Your family is a testament to truly being a family and your son is a rock star! Thank you for the continued updates through it all. I know I speak for many when I say that my mama and friend heart was turned toward Randall's all day and each update was validation of Gods grace and might. I hope you are all able to rest tonight for a bit and that you will all slow to re-coop in the coming days and weeks. Please know that you guys are lifted up in prayer by a community of those who love each of you dearly. Team Billington!
