Yesterday was full of surprises, with smiles on my face hell I won't need botox anytime soon. The smiles stretched my face from ear to ear. As we arrived in the morning we had to wait for the nurses to finish up their reports after Marco told us he had had a fever all night and had not slept to much not to mention the 4.4 earthquake that rocked us all out of bed. Under all the Morphine that is being given and being tired we let Marco rest ,when we were able to go into ICU Marco was sitting up and eating a cheese toast and smiling for a picture. INCREDIBLE what my man does, SUPERMAN has nothing on him. I was so happy to see him off the bed and on a chair looking very good. Drugged but looking good.
The were checking him constantly till his fever went down and by the end of the day it was down to normal. Most of the day we let Marco rest, which was great to see him somewhat focused to talk to us. The chest tube is located on his side and this is time this was great because he doesn't have the breathing problems like his last surgery. He is more comfortable after surgery, this time around.
Dr. Grannis (the surgeon) came in and was so excited to see Marco sitting up. He looked very surprise to see him there. He said "How do you feel" and all together now what did Marco say "I am feeling good", he smiled and said I am very surprised you are sitting in that chair a day after surgery and that you look so good because it was a very big surgery. So he said all looked good they would just keep an eye on the fevers.
The whole family got another surprise, we all got to meet Rocio (RO) she has been such an inspiration to myself, Marco and the kids since the first e-mail that we received from her. Telling us her personal story of survival gave us hope and in that we found a new friendship. We finally got to meet her it was exciting to finally put a face on a friend. We all filled her in on Marco's progress and Matthew filled her up with cheezy jokes which were funny. It was as if we knew her a long time and we were just catching up. Thank you very much for talking with Marco he was very glad that you stopped by and visited. Hope to see more of you Ro.
