Troy's father, sister, and son came to the hospital today to see Troy. It was an emotional but really good day, and I'm very happy they could all be there for him.
Troy is awake, talking, eating, and wanting to get up out of his bed, so the ICU kicked him upstairs. More than one caretaker expressed awe and happiness at his level of recovery. I am thrilled! Tonight is my first night back at home since Troy went in the hospital; it feels empty without him and the dogs. I'll be back at the hospital tomorrow, and for as long as it takes for him to recover enough to come home.
