We forgot it was Thanksgiving Day yesterday. The docs decide to keep R on bed rest until Saturday. I appreciate the care and caution on his behalf, but I am struggling a little, knowing that in the states he would probably been sent home within hours of the surgery. R didn’t get much rest in the hospital with his chatty roommates, so it is probably just as well. I manage to get the physicians to snap to the need to make plans on a longer-range than day-to-day and they agree that tickets for Sunday is a reasonable decision.
