In addition to the drain being installed yesterday, yesterday was moving day.  They have all patients move every month to allow for the room to be completely cleaned.  From the few examples I've seen, that generally means moving to a nicer room, since they can pick the day when the move happens, and so we moved one day early to ensure getting a nicer room.  The new room is at least 50% bigger, and the bed is double the size, and has a huge window sill due to an interesting architecture design that is hard to describe in person, so we'll have to get a picture of it.  If they hadn't done anything with the design, the window would have been facing a wall or maybe a tiny portion of the garden.  But, instead the installed a floor to ceiling mirror diagonally, and then a left-facing window, with a window sill that is probably 6 feet long, and 7 or 8 feet tall.  The result is that there is another "room" that I think with some pillows or blankets, might make for a nice little nook to hang out in behind the bed, so we'll have to try that out.  It probably won't work for Grace, due to all of her connections to the pumps, but I expect the siblings will enjoy it.

Mom arrived right as we were moving, and so helped get the new room organized while I brought Grace down to the "interventional radiology", which was described to me as for simpler procedures that didn't require the operating room, but I suspect, as with many things in the hospital, the recipient of the description would have a different description of themselves than the speaker.

Heather is coming today and Mom and Faith will stay with Grace for a while so Heather and I can have a date before we return to the hospital.

I've updated the visiting instructions post with the new room number.  The mailing address stays the same.
