When I left the hospital last night I left Ryan in a neck brace, tired, sore, and worried…
I walked into the hospital room at a few minutes after 8am this morning. To see this!
He’s a little ragged but he’s doing great! The doctors said that there is no sign of a fracture this morning at all!
The sprain has been downgraded to a minor sprain, the contusions and swelling on his other leg have actually GONE DOWN overnight with no ice or wrapping. The torn muscle is a bit painful but on further assessment they think that it will heal just fine on it’s own.
In fact Ryan says the thing that hurts him the most is hospital inflicted!
This was Ryan’s very first hospital stay AND his very first IV and he wants it out!!!!!
Unfortunately he is still in the hospital… Standard procedure here in Germany is to be admitted for observation for 25 hours. Ryan was officially admitted last night at about 9pm. Shift ends today at 4pm. So this means he won’t get released until tomorrow morning… He’s a little annoyed to be stuck in the hospital for three days for bumps and bruises but we’re both just so thankful that he’s okay!
Although the timing is awful Ryan has forbid me from canceling my trip home when he’s not even limping. So I’ll be leaving Germany as planned on Sunday morning. I feel guilty for leaving him but I’m so glad that I’ve spent the last few weeks freezing meals for him and making sure he’d have minimal work!
I’m going to spend today giving the house a good hard scrub and making sure that the house is self sufficient so that Ryan doesn’t have to do much in the next few weeks.
Before I left I took him his portable DVD player, his MP3 player, his Nintendo DS and a book. If he gets bored it will be a miracle! I can guarantee you that he’ll have a more relaxing day than most of us!
I have to take a moment to say thank you from Ryan and I. We have kept in touch with family and friends through email and have been part of the online community for years now. But you have blown us away with your outpouring of prayers and words of support in the midst of this scare. We are truly blessed to have all of your in our lives and to know that there are prayers going up for us worldwide. Thank you… more than words.
I’ll let you know if there are any changes or updates.
