Adam, Ari and I drove down to Vancouver today, just couldn't stay away. The roads were all clear and we had a great trip down. We arrived around 6:00 pm and went right to the hospital. Joel was very tired, on lots of medication and still in a lot of pain. But he was very happy to see us. They moved Joel over to Vancouver General Hospital this afternoon because they have more experience with removing clots. They have a plan now, surgery to remove the clot tomorrow at 11:00 am. They want to deal with it fast now in order to reduce the risk of permanent damage to the vein and his leg. We met a few members of the team who will be working on Joel tonight. They came in one at a time to introduce themselves, assess him and answer some of our questions. We will meet the rest of them tomorrow.
Anyway, I am very tired and I still have the boys laundry wash tonight. So glad to be at Ronald MacDonald House. We are in Room 7 this time. Bunk beds for me and Adam, Ari is sleeping on a foamy on the floor.
