Bear is much less deeply asleep these days. If I speak to him, he twitches his lids a bit, or moves a hand. Still, if they let up on the sedation, they'd have to pull his tubes, and they are not there yet. They are hanging some blood for him today. Now I know what type he is...O positive, same as I am. Apparently he was low. He looks a lot better. They're going to stop the antibiotic today, and that should make his diarrhea stop, and then it's a matter of getting his oxygen right and waking him up. This is not the sucky part.
I stopped off at the city building to find out the exact total I need to get things back on. Apparently I misremembered and calculated too low. $1999.67. It's...disheartening... to go from "I can get it on soon" to "only halfway." But I'd rather know than not. Again, if you want to help me eat the elephant, the GofundMe link is here.
Also, all the driving plus the weather rolling through Indiana has the arthritis in my foot yelling very loudly. I am attempting to ignore it, because that's the only real tool I have in the arsenal just now.
I'm in a good-ish mood, but man, it's being eroded fast by all this.
