I just got back from David's room and of course can't fall asleep, so here are some updates from the past 2 days.
Dave and I were interviewed for the Air Force TV (?) about our Recovery Care Coordinator and how it is vital to have someone here for you and your family. Our RCC, Mr. F is awesome (which is nice because we didn't have to make up how great he is for the cameras). He has handled all the little stuff that we either would not know to do or did not know how to do. Plus he has the best personality, you can't be in a bad mood after talking to Mr. F! Dave did a great job on camera despite being on loads of drugs!
Dave's Mom and Granny flew in yesterday afternoon.
2 EOD guys from the Barksdale Shop (Brian and JT) came up for a VIP and stopped by to see us.
The Barksdale Wing Commander also drove up from a meeting he had in VA to see Dave and we had such a great visit with him!
I slept in while Mom and Granny spent time with Dave. He had PT at 1:30 and right before he scooted off one of the nurses told him to wait that a "distinguished guest" was about to arrive. It was Angelina Jolie! She spent about 20 minutes talking with Dave and taking pictures! Then after she left the liaison came around and handed out gift bags signed by her with a gift card to Best Buy worth $1,000!
PT ran a little long and Dave returned to the room ready for a nap.
We found out that he will have one more surgery Monday morning for a cleanout, then next Tuesday the 30th he will have another flap surgery on his left leg. They will take 3 of his 6 pack (ab muscles) and attach to his leg. We are really counting on this to work (as Dave is quickly running out of muscles for them to take). Too bad he does not need fat and skin because being the generous and loving wife that I am, I would donate in a heartbeat!
Tuesday Dave will have his official Purple Heart Ceremony. The Chief of Staff of the Air Force (the one that met us on the plane) will present Dave and 2 other AF guys their PH's. I will remember my camera and plan on taking lots of pictures.
That's about it or at least all I can remember right now. Tomorrow should be a nice relaxing Saturday!
