Trying to get discharged

Hi everyone,

Suzy is still quite groggy (the pain meds are literally knocking her out). Suzy doesn't normally take much in the way of pain killers, so these are hitting her harder than they might affect others, at least that's what the attending doctor seemed to indicate.

We were supposed to be out of the hospital by 10am, but clearly that isn't going to happen. Suzy still needs to be able to 'void' her bladder and walk around the hallway of her hospital wing at least three times. Considering that she hasn't walked out of her room even once, we might be here awhile yet. We're optimistic that she will depart this afternoon/evening, but God himself only knows.

We'll post more as it develops. Once again, thanks for your prayers and support - they are very much appreciated.


  1. Thinking of you all and sending my love! One day at a time...I know how badly you all want to be on the road home and how draining this all is, but we have to be patient with the healing. One step at a time (literally! 3 laps around the hallway, here you come)! God Bless--McD

  2. Dear David and Suzy,

    You are in our prayers and love, and we commend you to St. Therese and St Anthony.

    Thank you for keeping us posted.

    God's blessings,
    Mom and Dad

  3. Suzy! Great to talk to you today! And you didn't fall asleep on me. Prayers to St. Gianna for you today at Noon Mass. God bless you and Dave!


  4. You'll be discharged when your body is ready for you to be discharged. It's all in God's plan, be patient and let your body heal, it will all work itself out!!!

    God Bless!!!
