Can You Study For This Test?

Not much goes on in a hospital on Sunday! We are really just waiting for tomorrow. It's the big day. Troy's Barium Swallow Test. He may be up studying all night! Seriously, if this test goes well he will be able to start swallowing some liquids and slowly work his way up to food. Also, they will remove all remaining tubes and wires! Chest tube, epidural, catheter - he will be set free!

His doctors are amazed at how well his labs look and he is doing great. He still has quite a bit of pain, but I think that is to be expected. One doctor commented today that Troy is making them look good! It really feels great to hear and see how impressed the doctors and nurses are with his progress.

We are also hoping to get his pathology results back on the lymph nodes, but I can't imagine anything other than good news.

And every word I didn’t say that caught up in some busy day
And every dance on the kitchen floor we didn’t dance before
And every sunset that we’ll miss I’ll wrap them all up in a kiss
And pick you up in all of this when I sail away - Train, My Private Nation

What wonderful news!! We will look forward to reading more good news today after the test.
It is great to see pictures of Jessica & Samantha too. They are both beautiful!! (Of course I am sure I don't have to tell you that)
Troy, your new hair do is lovely. It kind of reminds of me of some other singers I've seen.
Thanks for sharing your updates, pictures, etc.
Lots of love to each of you,
