I return to our room and Zack asks "where have you been?" As I explain, I can tell he is starting to fade. The nurse had come in with his medicine so I encourage him to lay back in bed and rest while I'm gone. I run to the local store for our weekly supply of muffins, drinks, hot wings and chips. Since Zack still doesn't eat Hospital food, we have to make sure he has everything at his disposal when he does want to eat. When I return to the hospital, I drive around for twenty five minutes before I can find a parking spot. Unfortunately the Emergency Room is again at full capacity, making it hard to find parking this week.
As soon as his friends (my kids) leave, he crawls into bed and we are both down for the night. I was supposed to grab dinner with Rhonda downstairs, but am just not feeling up to it. The more rest I can get the better and being in a cafeteria surrounded by people is not my idea of fun right now.
