They moved Dino from ICU back to a regular room around noon today and I think they may have him on something other than morphine because he seemed somewhat woozy. His pain has dropped a bit (yesterday 7, today 5-6), but today was the doldrums - slow, not much in the way of anxiety, more like "when is this all going to be over?"
Dr. Norton was in early this morning (no new news) just checking on his patient. I don't think Dean's quite ready to be pecking away at his own blog yet. Maybe by Friday, maybe the weekend. Mary printed the last several days worth of blogs and comments for him which he read and said, "Tell everyone thanks and I love 'em." So - another day in the slow evolution of recovery; some days are diamonds, some days are stone. BUT WE'RE GETTING THERE!
