Rudy moved out of ICU...

Hi All,

Just an FYI that Rudy was moved out of the ICU an hour ago and is now in Room #610...
Again, no visitors while in the hospital as he is prepping to be released and go home on Saturday.


Another Update....

So as I said Rudy & Nana are doing really well. Nana has been up and walking about and Rudy sat up for a little bit today and is now taking a nap. The doctors are surprised at how well Rudy is recovering, so they are considering moving him out of the ICU today to the 6th Floor.
The doctors do not want any visitors at this time while he is in the hospital because they are anticipating sending Rudy home Saturday. That's right, This Saturday!
So please hold off on visiting or sending anything and we will let you know when it is ok, as well as provide Rudy's home address later.

Today is the Day for Rudy's Surgery...

Hello All! I just received word from Rudy's sister, Mimi ,who is keeping me posted so that I can relay the message to all of you. His sister is in recovery and Rudy did not go into surgery at 1030AM as scheduled in the previous post. He went into surgery at about 12noon today and will hopefully be out by around 4pm today. Mimi will call me once he is out of surgery and in recovery. Once that happens, I will give you all an address and room# for any of you that would like to send him something. I will also let you know what the visiting hours will be over the next few days.

Rudy and his family thank you all for your support!
