The goal for Monday was to get Travis eating, drinking and out of bed a few times so that he can start getting his strength back. We went for a ride in the wheel chair around the hospital in the morning and again in the afternoon. Throughout the day, he nibbled on a pretzel and blueberry muffin. He asked for a chocolate milk shake and drank ¾ of it over about a 4 hour period of time. He also mixed in some “ice cold” water and Gatorade and said that if felt good on his throat. With what he ate and combined with the milk shake, it started things moving down below and we had to rush to the bathroom which was a good thing. We adjusted his pain medication again and he was a lot more alert. Small steps towards our goal of getting him home.
Thanks for checking in on us!
