I spent the day in the hospital with Josh. He is in much better spirits, but there are a few health issues that must be resolved before he can be discharged. As usual in a hospital, he is at the mercy of the hospitalist, the specialist, and their busy schedules.
His parents, uncle, and girl friend are out of town, so part of my responsibility today was to update the group by text message, and for a while this morning I was flooded with questions that I couldn't answer until we saw the doctor. Josh and I were laughing that when he finally came in, we were going to make him do a live chat.
"I'm going to say, "A caller in Colorado wants to know how to manage colitis with diet." I said.
"Michelle from Pennsylvania wonders when the chest x-ray is going to happen," Josh continued.
"A listener named Heidi asks how you know if the steroids are working," I added.
"If we do that to him," Josh said, "we'll probably never see him again!"
