Jim is good and not leaking

Today, Jim had a barium swallow test to see if there were any leaks.  Apparently not because the doctor ordered Jim a tray full of popcicles, jello, broth, and juice.  Of course, he had a sugar high then and had to get an insulin shot.

Dr. Johnson said we may be going home on Sunday or Monday.  Our social worker and nurses were running around trying to get Home Health lined up for us, so Jim can have tube feedings at night.  I said we need to talk to a dietician before we go anywhere, too.

We had a few sweet friends visit today, and are expecting lots of family tomorrow.  Jim had a nice warm shower, had all of his dressings changed and now he feels pretty good.  He still needs pain medicine, but not nearly as much as even two days ago.
