My honey just called to say the doctor released him to come home this afternoon. They want to do two tests on him before he leaves, so the release is contingent upon the outcome of those tests. But we're not worried. The one is a chest x-ray, and he's had no major problems with congestion at all since he's been in there. He has, in fact, had a chest x-ray every day since arriving. Secondly, they want to do a test to determine if his vocal chords are paralyzed. Again, we feel certain he's fine. His voice is still very hoarse and raspy, but we do feel that it's improved the last day or so. Anyway, what are they going to do? Keep him in the hospital because he can't speak loudly? I don't think so! So, I am on my way to the hospital. It will be a tiring day, because once they tell you you're going to be released, you can think of little else all day long!
Thanks, again, for the precious thoughts and prayers.
