So, now she's eaten 4 popsicles, cheetos and half a McFlurry! She's taken 2 walks around the floor and done VERY well on both of them!!! She had a 2-hour nap this afternoon, but otherwise her sedation levels are low enough that she isn't dozing off mid-sentence. This is exciting! Her prograf level adjusted nicely to holding the 2 doses. She is still getting full feeds for 12 hours overnight, but maybe they'll cut back or drop those when they hear she's eaten today. We shall see...enjoy the pics!
|Getting set to do PT this morning.|
|Eating an ice cream cone!|
|Up for her 1st walk!!!! Yes, she looks not-so-happy in this pic, but she was doing really good.|
|Look how she's sitting up and not laying back on the bed or using the pillows to hold her up :-)|
I'm sorry. You, dear readers, are probably going through withdrawal. Hope its not as bad as Shelby's was :-O This is a good thing that I haven't been able to post yet today. Scott had to go back home yesterday to work on finishing up school - he graduates in 15 days :-) :-) :-) - so I'm flying solo. PT and OT and Snow City Arts and the social worker and the tutors and volunteers, all come in to see her/work with her, but she still likes her Mama around. She has sat up in the chair about 3 times today (once for almost 45 minutes), the feeds are working their way through her system (yippee) and....she asked for ice cream AND ate it!!!! She had a drumstick and a sundae. SO HAPPY! Her sats rock (you know, except for that whole when-she-moves thing). They were 91-96% last night and right now they are 94%. Her prograf level came back high (17 - her target range right now is 10-12) so they held last night's and this morning's doses, but Dr. Whitington said no matter what her level comes back as, resume her dose tonight at 3 mg not 4. No problem. This is how things go. In a few minutes I'm making her rest because she has been going pretty strong so she needs to get herself ready to go for a walk later :-) I'll try to post pics of it.
