Doyle Sits Up!...

October 8: Here is Doyle in Pre-OP, just a few minutes before he went under. He was a bit tired since neither of us sleep well anywhere other than our own bed, but he insisted I take a picture of him all wired up for brain function monitoring.

The tag of the bundle of wires states: "DO NOT THROW AWAY". We concur.

I asked if one of the things they could do is once they have his brainwaves recorded out if they could come and explain what the heck is really going on inside this guys head to me. they said they would try.....

Doyle said while he was under he was going to assault and take over the Hospital computer system through those wires attached to his head. All the techs around him in hearing distance put in their request for more pay, more vacation time, etc.

He then went on to say he'd be wandering the entire national electrical grid and all computer networks, fixing our national debt problems and such. I do believe he will.....

So.. if suddenly everyone we know gets a check from Uncle Sam (no questions asked) and suddenly your lottery numbers hit, you know who to thank.

He is a picture of Doyle this morning, October 12, he has been walking and sitting and is now allowed real coffee and food.

We had a tough couple of days when the pain was at it's worse, but the Angels of Mercy here did what they could to maintain that delicate balance between pain relief and sedation so he could rebound faster. This is an incredible place and the staff is like none we have ever experienced before!

He has the usual incision pain, and feels a bit weak, but he's getting better by the minute and looks forward to getting the heck out of here and going home to recover!

The prognosis is great for Doyle to resume his normal activities in three months, (do they have any idea what is normal for Doyle?) and we have been OK'd to head for Florida in November, where the Doctor has referred him to a Doctor there for continued monitoring.

Doyle would like to thank everyone who has prayed or sent good wishes our way, he feels it was the reason he made it and is healing so quickly. We both thank you all and hopes you all are blessed as we have been!

Yehaa! Although, I must add that he looks a bit droopy in the eyes in the second pic! Hey there, brother, take care and behave...no chasing nurses now that you're up and about, just kidding... We are so, so glad you've come through with flying colors. I would imagine that your active lifestyle is one of the things that helped and will help your recovery. I've got lots of hugs waiting for ya both!
