Update for Saturday

Stan is doing OK mostly.  He is running a fever most of the time and when they give him something for it, it breaks and he ends up soaking wet.  This usually happens in the middle of the night and the nurses have to change all the linens. 

Yesterday, after reading all the foot doc's notes, everyone finally agreed with me that Stan was not to put any weight on his foot.  They had been letting him use it for balance.  Now they transport him to the bathroom on a Sara Stedy.  It is so much easier than the walker. 

He will have tests on Monday to study the vascular system from head to toe.  He still isn't eating.  He had been OK with a new protein shake, but yesterday, it started tasting bad to him.  He got a bowl of chicken-noodle soup for dinner and got a straw and drank the broth -no noodles, no chicken.

I hope we know more after the tests Monday.  He is really getting sick of all this, pun intended.  All his doctors are very optimistic, which is a plus.
