Crabbcakes, Thanks so much for checking in on us! Today we saw a big improvement in DS which meant we were able to walk around more, we went out to the court yard which no one but us seems to use and it was a rare sunny day here in SF.
Our Netflix arrived today so that was a big treat. DS is really into post apocalyptic shows. He used to read more than he does now. He loved the Percy Jackson series and Rick Riordan too. Do your kids like the Artemis Fowl series? We listened to them through our library, the audios are really good. I found a used bookstore the other day and I got us an engrossing book to listen to while we work on a jigsaw puzzel. We used to that while building Lego.
The hospital has a staff of "Child Life" that does stuff with kids or gets them things to do. DS is very polite with them but isn't into to chatting with them. Fortunately for the past 2 days he's had friends call and they talked for a long time. With any luck we may actually get some visitors this weekend, being so for from home makes it difficult for visitors.
Within the hospital we have to be especially careful about germs, DS has to wear a mask when he leaves our room and the staff has to wear masks and gloves when entering his room. We don't want him catching anything while we are here.
So that's about it for now. Tomorrow we check his lung capacity again; the doc confirmed that the earliest we could leave would be Tuesday. But I'm not hurrying out of here; I want DS to be as healthy as possible before we leave.
