Mark is home now
its been a while since I wrote, things are pretty busy lately. Mark is doing fine he's only going to be on his feeding tube for another week. He has a Doctors appointment on our Anniversery 5-11.
He's physically doing well but had a bad withdraw from Morphine. He's been feeling sad and depressed. When someone is on Morphine so long and they come down off it, it hits them really hard. Well my mom is a psych nurse at the U of I hospital in Iowa City. She recommed a doctor there to talk with him. They said that when someones been through a lot of medical treatment and surgeries it puts a lot of stress on them mentally.
I told him that I'll be there for him and that we're strong enough to get through this.
Things will get back to normal it just takes a while.
