Day 3 post op (Sunday)

Standard

Today is day 3 post op. Last night was much better than the night before. She continued to have significant pain and nausea but was able to sleep several hours in between nurses visits and loud noises in the hallway.

She still has alot of brain pressure type pain today. She has been on IV steroids to help that. Took a few bites of cereal, drank water and worked with physical therapy. Today she did stairs, leg squats, heel raises, balance and coordination exercises. Despite how badly she felt, she worked through it..

At noon we were discharged to the hotel. We have strict instructions, guidelines and medications. We have to learn to manage everything before we are allowed to fly home tentatively Tuesday.

The doctor expected her pain to be better today but so far it hasn’t. Frustration is creeping in. Please continue to pray specifically for the pain and nausea. She’s working really hard and we are proud of her strength.

We really need your prayers. We are all very tired and ready to see our girl smile. Thank you for your loving words of encouragement. They keep us strong. Love Jill

  1. Tell my little first grade Anna I’m praying for her. I will pray specifically for her pain and nausea. Please share with her a verse that was shared with us at church today- Romans 15:13. It talks about how hope heals. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

    Many blessings,
    Monique Summers
