|Seth and his dad after PT|
On Monday morning, Seth rocked his PT (100 crunches) and had enough energy left over for lunch out on the Heaton Pavillion and to check his Facebook--for a record outing of three hours.

Today Seth took another big step forward--his PCA was shut down, so no more IV and no more middle-of-the-night vitals checks. He made a two-hour outing with no IRs (instant-release pain meds)
--also a first.
We continue to be part of history here. We felt the earthquake that shook the East Coast today, and now we have warnings about Hurricane Irene this weekend--just as we move over to the new hospital.
A good friend once gave me some perspective about some problems I was having by helping me identify data points vs. trends. These past two days have also had some very difficult moments, but they were manageable when I could see that they were single data points rather than trends.
