Thursday early afternoon

26 Sep

I’m seeing some real improvement both clinically and mentally today.  Her oxygen supplement is lower, she’s no longer on IV fluids, is drinking liquids (although not much interested in eating) and is interacting like her old self.  She’s frustrated at her limitations which ironically is a good sign because it means she’s more motivated to improve.  She still has the after-effects of the extended surgery and sedation in that she occasionally misses a few beats in her cognitive functions.  She tires very easily so visits need to be time limited, but she does enjoy seeing folks.  Mornings are best. In the afternoons she is more tired and struggles a bit more with breathing.

A big step today was when she was able to use her iPad a little and read a few emails.  Not bad considering I upgraded her device while she was “asleep” last week and it has a different look and feel.

    Such great news!! One step at a time, Marian. Steve and I have arrived in Floripa. Sitting here praying for you with the sound of ocean waves pounding in the background. God is almighty and awesome– in creation and in YOUR life!
