In recovery and managing the pain

(from CaringBridge 2018)


David was moved from the ICU to the main hospital yesterday. He is next to a window and was able to see (and hear) the Blue Angels fly past several times during their performance for San Francisco's Fleet Week. The photo here shows the IV tubes connected to his left arm and he's demonstrating breathing into the spirometer. As you may imagine he has a lot of pain and the staff are working with him to manage that. Today when I spoke with him he had just been moved from the bed to sit in a chair for a while - a small but significant step on the path to recovery and healing.
