He called from the hospital around 3:00 to say that his physical therapy had gone really well and they were sending him home. He's on the border of where they would want home oxygen, but he saturated really, really well on the going up and down the stairs test, and he didn't fall, so they figure better at home than in the hospital. We couldn't agree more! He arrived around 7:30.(Hospital discharges always, always seem to take forever. This one was complete just in time to pour Will and Doug into rush hour traffic in the middle of a huge rain and wind storm.)
IV antibiotics arrived safely and are already safely in the refrigerator for the 10:00 dose. I don't know really anything about his discharge orders or follow up, but I guess I'll find out in due time. Right now we're just very glad he seems on the mend and is home safely. Thank you so much to Grandpa DH for being with Will today and waiting through all the hospital discharge stuff, and piloting the long drive home in the rain.
