Back on the 4th Floor!

We made it back to the 4th floor today! We are hoping this will be our permanent residence for the rest of our hospital stay. We are tentatively scheduled for skin flaps/grafts on Tuesday. This would put us back in ICU, but only for 3 days so they can monitor the flaps. They are possibly going to try again because he made a great recovery this weekend and is completely off O2 at the moment.  We are just going to wait and see if it happens. (We are not getting our hopes up again, but we are hoping that 3rd times a charm) Today was a good day, but Justin was tired. I think all the meds are making him lethargic.

Today Justin had a visitor from the Medal of Honor Recipient, Sergeant First Class Petry. He was a very nice guy and spent time talking to Justin and his friend Mike. (Mike was injured in early July and was in Justin's battery) The picture above is from today. Other than that not a lot to report. Justin had a quite day and spent most of it eating or sleeping. Our cousin Kelli spent her last day here with us. We are sad to see her leave but so glad she came! She is heading back to Hawaii in the morning. I will keep everyone updated as the week progresses!
