Ruben spent another day without the breathing machine, and continued to breath at an acceptable rate. He spent the day in a very cheerful mood (when he wasn’t sleeping or eating, which occupied much of his time and attention). He is so freaking cute it defies the laws of dreams and beauty.
The cardiologists are having a meeting tomorrow with their cardiologist friends from other hospitals and they will discuss Ruben’s case. It seems there will likely be more procedures that he will need, but they will decide tomorrow if he needs them now, or if he can go home, and come back (possibly soon) for the next steps. By which time he will probably have jumped bail and be on a freight train to Mexico. And who could blame him.
So, keep your fingers crossed. They say we could be on our way home as soon as Thursday (!). And they say that we might not be leaving for a while. We won’t know till it actually happens.
