YAGU™

(I found a free wifi spot in the waiting room outside ICU.)

They removed the ventilator just a few minutes ago. His first words upon being able to speak:
Granddaddy: I am not going to the hospital!

Mama: We're at the hospital.

Granddaddy: No hospital!

Mama: Where do you think you are?

Granddaddy: At home.

Mama: Okay, then, we won't leave here.
Ah, the fine art of diplomacy.

We'll see how that works later when he is more himself and maybe remembers more of the last couple of days.

We're thinking maybe he doesn't remember much after falling. Maybe because of the blow on the back of his head, maybe because with all the CPR they did, there were periods of time when his brain got little to no oxygen.

I found out I got a couple of facts wrong. He did not get CPR in Eutaw. He got CPR for two hours in the ambulance and then once he got here to DCH RMC.

If he stays in the ICU tonight (and we hope he does), we'll go back home to get more sleep (my mother and I got about 12 and 14 hours, respectively) tonight. If not, and they move him to a private or semi-private room, then we have to stay up here with him in shifts.
