Man plans, God laughs

when last i posted
i was about to fly off to the UK
i was worried about toonman 

well

i was right to worry
and
i never made it to the UK

yup

man plans, god laughs
its one of my favorite sayings
never more so than these last 14 days


so to reassure you he's okay
there he is this past sunday

one 
day
home
from
hospital

yup

the short-ish version is 
after flights were cancelled thursday/friday 
we thought maybe
we'd fly out on saturday evening
but 
on saturday afternoon
toonman's 'cold' turned rather nasty
into 
hospital he went

he did NOT have the flu
if he had 
they'd have given him 
some meds and sent him home



nope
he had a respiratory virus
when combined with his asthma 
caused him to be unable to breathe

on sunday
he was off 
the hannibal lechter mask
onto
a cannula


contagious
he was stuck in isolation
visitors were gowned/masked
(i think he should have been masked as he was the germ-y one)


he progressed slowly
lots of tests
lots of nebulizing


one night when i got home from hospital
i decided to make blueberry biscuits
i planned on eating one


i ate them all


lots of other things happened that week
including a nor'easter


he was no longer contagious
he was moved into a room with a view


after a full week in hospital
he was released this past saturday

slowly every day he's improving
and
now
i
need
a
vacation
