Talked to Patsy this morning -- a brief update...
1) Mom's bilirubin was back into a normal range this morning, so let's hope it stays that way.
2) The pain drug switch helped a lot. She's not so hazy and not in tons of pain either. Thank goodness!
3) The water retention in her legs is still a big concern. It's just not leaving her body for some reason, so they're giving her more Lasix and asking her to walk as much as possible. Mom still can't walk on her own, but Patsy said it's a big objective today.
4) Not sure yet of a dismissal date, but it's getting closer. We're asking that she stay in until she can at least walk on her own, if not get up by herself. She'll likely need a nurse for a week or so after dismissal while they remain in Rochester.
That's it for now! Don't forget to wear some yellow tomorrow... she still needs our support!
