Hanging in there
Becky and Joe are still hanging in there. Becky was expected to be out of the hospital yesterday but she's still struggling a bit so she will be there until at least tomorrow (Sunday). She doesn't feel up to the phone or the computer but knows that everyone is pulling for her and she'll be in touch when she gets out of the hospital. They have arranged a room for her in a Residence Inn near Northwestern and her mom will stay with her there while she remains in Chicago. She'll have to come back to the hospital for tests and things - they have a shuttle so it should be pretty convenient and comfortable for both Becky and her mom.
Joe was sleeping when we visited today but according to his parents, he is improving slowly. He is more comfortable walking than Becky and I'm told he can make it several laps around the floor. Becky joined him for half a lap today and does half laps on her own a few more times a day. Exciting stuff.
There is talk of Joe getting out of the hospital tomorrow as well, but I think he has a few benchmarks to hit before he is released. Only time will tell. He will head back to his apartment under the care of his dad.
Hopefully tomorrow will bring a little more comfort to both of them. They're just taking it a day at a time.
