30 Hours Later, Discharged
After spending last night and today in NICU, Gorman is a free man. Dr. Markert said that Gorman’s vital signs were all good and he was discharged with many prescriptions and instructions. He has a very large incision above his right ear, larger than before and was warned that he will develop a black eye and lots of ugly bruises. The incision also runs down the front edge of his ear and I told him that everyone would think he had a face lift. Gorman is quite the resilient man, the come-back kid!
We got to our hotel tonight and he was so happy to take a long, hot and very careful shower. Here’s the best news we’ve had in ages: dr said the MRI shows that the nodule is totally gone and today’s MRI was clear. We won’t know until next week if it was scar tissue or recurrence of the tumor but whatever it was, it’s gone.
We are staying in B’ham tonight. It was 7:30 before we left the hospital. Tomorrow we’ll see how he feels and maybe drive as far as Montgomery. We are so grateful to our dear Lord for sustaining us through some long and grueling hours and seeing us to this point. Thanks to all who have prayed for us and thanks for the comments posted. Gorman loves to hear those. We are so blessed. Good night.
