Brian came home from the hospital, yesterday. He's doing great! He's getting stronger and is able to move from side to side on his bed unassisted. He rarely takes pain medication, now.

Brian has a new diagnosis:

renal arterial stenosis (spelling?)

His right kidney is really small. There's narrowing of the arteries. So we'll be seeing a specialist. Until then, we monitor his blood pressure and give him blood pressure medication accordingly.

Although it isn't great, at least we have an answer to the mystery. kwim?

Brian thought riding home in an ambulance was really cool. LOL

How is mom? I'm incredibly exhausted. And I must have twisted my back doing something. The right side of my back is very painful. With that exception, I'm doing great moving Brian and I can change a bed quickly, with Brian still in it, like a pro. I've learned a lot of cool tricks... one of the benefits to the longer hospital stay. I'll take a picture soon with Brian in the Hoyer lift... that's how I get him to the wheelchair and back.
