Hello all, this is Kate reporting for duty. Andrea is laying in bed with Drew and Dan is relaxing so I am here to update you.
After the last update, Drew ate a little bit of dinner but not too much since he had such a large lunch. Dan's mom Kathy brought a lovely Mexican lasagna that someone had made for the Himmelbergers (I'm not sure who it was from, but they really liked it!)
We all headed down to the playroom for a little r&r. It was a regular zoo in there because a San Francisco Giant, Kevin Frandsen, was here for an evening visit/photo session. I think our friend Katie Scott might be jealous; she's a Giants fanatic. There was pizza and bingo, and he was talking to all of the kids. Dan had set up Drew's trains in the alcove since the playroom was so full, but Andrea was brave and asked Kevin to come out and say hi to Drew. He came out there for a while and he was really very nice! He wasn't awkward with the kids and I think Drew liked him too. He signed a shirt for Drew and gave him a baseball card and gave Dan a hat. Not autographed though. There was a newspaper photographer who took a great picture of Drew and Kevin which will very likely be in the paper or online; we'll keep you updated. Andrea got a pic too of course:See? Kevin is very nice and he is my new fiance, except I would maybe like to groom his eyebrows a little bit.
After mastering his monitors earlier, Drew has now conquered the controls on his bed, so he's been flattening out and folding himself in half for the last hour. It's very cute and Dan took a video of it:
Right now we are waiting for the nurse to come back in so that she can change the dressing that they did earlier. They are going to give him Fentanyl again but hopefully it will be very simple and quick this time. Andrea's staying the night here this time so pray for good rest for everyone and that the dressing change goes well. Good night, all of you beautiful people.
P.S. for those of you following the issue, Drew still can't stand to hear me laugh at all, he says, "no laughing!" :-)
