What a difference 30 hour makes! It’s unbelievable. We walked in ICU to visit and nurses had her sitting in a chair! She was medicated but would open eyes when we spoke to her. Physical therapy came and she responded very well to them. Her balance is good. She was only making hand motions and not able to speak. She was moved out of ICU onto the third floor of the hospital. Dr. Shahanian has a team of nurses on that floor that are experienced with his orders and procedures. They are fabulous. How can we go home without them?
It’s been a tough day with pain. Nausea and vomiting are much better. Still has some nausea when pain increases. Moving out of ICU was tiring for her. She was able to feed herself chicken broth and drink water for the first time since surgery.
Physical therapy returned and they walked! It was a challenge but she rocked it. They will walk again before bedtime.
After a nap, her nurse returned and made her shower! She sat on a shower chair and the nurse made her raise her arms to use the shower arm. She washed her own hair and afterwards we combed through every section. There was glue from the bandages he used. She was a trooper. When her hair is down you cannot even see where he shaved for the incision. It’s about an inch long and looks great.
Please continue to pray for her as she deals with the pain and soreness. We appreciate all of you so much! God will heal.
Update again tomorrow. Love Jill
