Just a quick update here tonight.
First off - Christine (Steph's mum) got here right on schedule, so breathe easy Eric. Just wanted to let you know she arrived all in one piece when you read this in the morning. We got her all tucked up for the night already. We did get by the hospital on the way home, so she's had a visit with Scott.
Scott this evening looked a bit better to my non-doctor eyes. He was chuffed to see his Nana walk in the room. Easily the biggest smile he's had on his face since admission last week. She also came with Oscar, the Harrod's 2008 Christmas bear in tow, which is now perched right at the foot of his bed keeping a watchful eye on Scott. I can tell he's better, as he made a comment after his nurse left the room. He said "she's purty" (trying to sound like me I guess). When Stephanie and Nana left the room for a bit, I told him I'd bet he wouldn't say it to her face. He instantly said "how much".
A few moments later, his nurse came back in and I lost 5 bucks, and his nurse replied "I see you're getting better!" He actually answered all her questions with words instead of nods. Removed the O2 mask at her request and kept talking to me for a few more minutes. He was still without the mask when I left and holding up a 94 on the meter, so that is a good sign.
Hopefully the night is at least a bit more restful for both of them.
