    Well, it's 8 PM and he is finally home from the hospital. Everything is good except for the oxygen level, still low, so they delivered oxygen to the house. We will take it one day at a time and will see if we can get it to go higher. My goal is by this Sunday to see it better. Thanks again everyone!

    Glad he is home.. encourage him to do breathing exercises.. It really helps open up the lungs..
    I always tell my pt. breathe in the beautiful flowers and now blow out the candles.

    Being conscience of breathing issues typically helps someone to work on breathing "wide" to open up the lungs. As long as he works on it I'm sure he'll be fine! Did they send him home with an incentive spirometer?

    So Glad he is home! A couple of things. FIRST AND FOREMOST, if you do decide to come #1 BIGGEST PRECAUTION... WASH WASH WASH HANDS... Bring hand sanatizer, especially the plane. You DON'T get sick from the "air system" on the plane, but from touching the seats, trays, etc, then touching your face/mouth, etc.

    Second, Aruba has a very very good medical system. Check with your hotel, they can arrange for an air concentrator and or portable 02 from local medical supply places, very inexpensively, especially if he needs the O2 at night. We've arranged this before for guests. In case of minor emergency you can call the Urgent Care Center 24/7, they are American Trained Docs, available 24/7. 911 is available, and the hospital/ambulance, etc is very very good (I have experience, unfortunately).

    If your doc says 80% chance... I wouldn't cancel yet.. see how is O2 sats are...if everything is a go... then you should go, with precautions.

    Also, If you all, I would try to figure out WHY he has gotten Pneumonia 3x and he is normally very healthy!?! Sounds like something may not be resolving or something else going on with him.

    Best of Luck!

    Thank you Ed & Liz for the great advice. Today was the first day he said he felt really good, however the darn oxygen will not go higher than 85-87 without the tank, it's 92 with the tank. Tomorrow the PT is coming to the house. Keeping my fingers crossed!
    (I'm still packed!)
