Saturday at the hospital

Well, we are going on four days since the accident. The physical therapists got Andrew out of bed and into a wheel chair today. He did all right with the move into the chair and later back into bed, but the second photo shows him sleeping sitting up. The painkillers still keep him drifting in and out of wakefulness. He isn't taken the percoset as often, so I am hoping that that pain is easing back a bit. The big issue is hiccups right now. He has the most brutal hiccups I have ever heard. It sounds like he will bring his insides up each time. He gets a drug which stops them for about two hours, but he can only take it every six hours. They are going to run a test in the morning to try to find out what is going on. The hiccups need to be fixed, it is wearing him out.

Oh my goodness...I feel so bad for Andrew. Poor guy, he just went out for a simple ride to the store. It goes to show you how quickly life can change.
