My dad may get to go home. He is like defying ALL medical odds.

He's a huge Alabama fan (even though we all know they
suck) so I got him these beanies and balloon.

!!!!!!!HOOK EM HORNS!!!!!!!!

Ok, sorry, I just had to say that. Anyway. He really DOES
want to go home, but he's a little less that excited about the
fact that they are about to take him off of his oxygen, oops,
I meant the morphine pain pump.

Hey, its not going to be any picnic for those of us spending
the night in the room with him EITHER, although... when
he was all hopped up on narcotics I made him promise that
I could cut into the regularly scheduled fishing programming
to watch Desperate Housewives. N0w that is a cool dad!

I told him he could perv on Nicollette Sheridan and Gabrielle
Solis. Here we go, an embarassing photo for posterity:

Now doesn't he just look so happy?
I love you Daddy!

Glad to hear it Sydney. I think he will recover better at home. Too much of everyone waking him up and checking this and that.

Now, you get some rest.

Sydney said...

you're not kidding suze, they wake all of us up several times a night flipping on the lights to check this and that.
