"Brown-noser appreciation day?"
Finally I told him it was Mother's day. "Ahhh... right."
It's hard getting Mike's sarcasm because his intonationa nd facial expressions aren't as pronounced as they used to be. Besides that, sometimes I'm actually not sure that he's joking. Even in this conversation - i think there was a part of him that might have been serious? After all these years, I still can't totally tell when freaking Mike Young is joking.
Later, the PT and OT people came in to do some therapy with him. One of them said, "Wow! You look great, Mike!" and he did a little head movement and eyebrow arch and and said all sleazily, "Why... thank you..." It was great.
He had a good lunch - salad with chicken and some juice and soda. They've taken him off of IV fluids in the hopes that he can start regulating his own electrolytes. We shall see.
In a potentially annoying moment today, a nurse came in and told me they were moving Mike up a floor to a less-monitored unit. Same nursing staff and same N.P.s and all, but still - moving is stressful. So, I hustled all around and took down the thousands of things hanging on Mike's walls and packed up all his schtuff and then..... "Stop! He's not moving anymore!" said the nurse. GEEEE-zus. Not the most organized place. So, I unpacked everything, put all the stuff back up on the walls and at least now his room's all tidy. so yes, he's in the same place - 6604b at Jefferson hospital for neuroscience at 900 walnut street.
I picked him up a new polo shirt at Target and he put it on this morning and looks great. Those hospital gowns are a drag. I think it just makes Mike feel more human to have normal street clothes on.
