Yeehah! Good news!

Tom was sitting up and very alert when I got there -- quite a change from Saturday through yesterday. And he not only had already had some physical therapy, he was ready to move out of the ICU to a real room on the 3rd floor. He had told them he didn't want to be moved until after I got there.

Got a full report from his nurse -- they found three polyps this morning and snipped them off. Only one needed to be cauterized. They didn't find anything that was bleeding and figure the blood may have been from the gastritis they found yesterday (which no one told me about).

Anyway, it looks as if he may be coming home soon -- from the hospital without going back to rehab.

He's now in room 353 at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover, NH -- the phone right to him is 603-609-6353. Hey! And no roommate!

Tom, I think, has more energy right now than I have -- I've been absolutely wiped out all day. Somebody turned the gravity way up. Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's the hectic schedule I've had lately, maybe it's the relief...

I'm again going to be fairly early -- besides, I have to work tomorrow. Then check in at The Press Room and relay the news to those not on Facebook or Mudcat. And THEN I can go see Tom. (And maybe get to bed early again, too.)
