Bob was still bothered with a fever today. It was a little lower than yesterday so maybe tomorrow it will be gone! The fever takes a lot of his energy so he remained on the vent today. He is restless and finds it difficult to find a comfortable position in his bed. He has mouthed very clearly that he just wants to leave this place! Any suggestions for making the day go quicker? He listens to great music on his computer. In fact the nurses have said they like to come into Bob's room because of the great tunes. We watch jeopardy and today I asked him if he would like to listen to a book on CD. He said he would try that so tomorrow morning I will stop at the library. I told him to pray that the fever will leave his body and that they will be able to do the swallowing test on Monday. That would hopefully allow him to have some food. (eating passes the time too) I will also pray for patience for Bob and me.
