Some good news - my wife should be home from the hospital either Wednesday or Thursday if all goes right. The plan now is that they're going to get her out of ICU and into a regular room (they're waiting for an available bed). To me, that's a great sign. Prayer is powerful! God is great! Thanks again for the prayers.

UPDATE 9/12/07: Ann finally got a regular room last night (YAY!). Would have posted it then, but I was getting ready for choir rehearsal.

UPDATE 9/13/07: Of course, there has to be a freakin' catch! The doc is still working on getting Ann's Coumadin levels up to snuff. They want it up to 2.0 and she's at 1.4. Worse, she started developing pains in her groin area, to the right, just before noon today. She went for a cat scan but they won't have an answer till tomorrow whether or not she may have gotten kidney stones. When it rains it pours. So, she may not be let loose at this point till Saturday or Sunday. *sigh*

UPDATE 9/14/07: Today we have some good news. Ann's got her Coumadin level up to 1.8 - AND - no kidney stones. The doc had been treating it as a urinary tract infection, and sure enough, he was right. The groin pains have gone way down and she's been able to walk around pretty near the entire fourth floor (well, her wing anyways). Sunday is still the projected day she gets let loose, according to the doc. Let's just hope that it's no later! :)
