Yesterday afternoon, Sue and Lisa sat with Eric (thanks!) while Bob and I took a break. It's been two months since we've done anything together as a couple besides being Eric's parents. We strolled through Hermann Park, looking at flowers and watching wildlife. Had dinner at Luby's. Felt like a date.
The doctor pulled chest tube number two out this afternoon. Eric's doing great. My prayerful pleas have shifted from "Please God, please" to "Thank you God, thank you."
Visitors today (in order of appearance): Aunt Lisa, Aunt Sue, Andrew, Grandma Rusnack, Aunt Cathy, Uncle Steve, the Easter Bunny (who gave Eric a stuffed rabbit) and two clowns.
