Bing bang.

  • I brought Smokey Bear home from the hospital last night.  Percy makes friends
  • He was there for seven days.
  • All week the lab results had indicated possible problems with his kidney function. (Elevated creatine level, thanks for asking.)
  • Yesterday's lab was A-OK, thus the release from confinement.
  • Yay!
  • He is taking antibiotics for the infection, oxycodone (~Percocet) for the pain, and Valium for the nausea. 
  • They all seem to be accomplishing their intended purpose. 
  • Yay!
  • He has asked for soda crackers and a barf bag a couple times but has not needed the latter.
  • Yay!
  • Younger Son was back at work Wednesday. 
  • He too had the nausea reaction to oxycodone, but only to the first dose.
  • Yay!
  • I don't want to jinx anything, but it seems that life might just be headed in the right direction again.
  • YAY!
