The docs were just in. Very pleased with her blood work, vitals, etc. They're taking her off IV to increase her nutritional levels. She's still moving so slow and they expect the brunt of her recovery to be 4 to 6 weeks. She had a rough, rough evening, having eaten her first meal of chicken noodle soup and vanilla milkshake. She developed severe cramping and it was painful to watch her. Mum has a high tolerance for pain, but she continually fell asleep (b/c that's what she does, as if narcoleptic) with a grimace on her face.
Yesterday, they transitioned her to oral meds, too, so once those kicked in, her pain simply fell to the ground like snowflakes.
I spent the night here snuggled up next to her. We have no roommate right now, so we shut the door and I only woke up once during bloodwork.Even though yesterday was challenging, she's giving us a few good laughs due to her meds. Of course, she's funny when clear-headed, but they clearly have her on "supremo" levels and I doubt she'll remember this week. Yesterday, she dreamt that Thayne and I were in here. She awoke and told Patsy that she'd heard Thayne talking, and that I'd said "mama" loud enough for her ears. Of course, neither of us were in the room.
And, today, while she sat and brushed her teeth, sitting on the edge of the bed and continually falling asleep, she saw two big raspberries in front of her.
As you can see, we're taking the humor anywhere we can get it.
