It's Wednesday noon, and Jody had the best morning so far.
Best news of all was that she got to take a shower and wash her hair, which really perked her up. We then got to take a stroll and, because she was unhooked from her pumps, we went downstairs and out the front door to have her breathe non-hospital air for the first time in six days. It was huge.
She' s asked them to leave the PCP pump and IV disconnected for awhile - so we're pushing fluids via more syringes (35 per day goal) and managing pain with oral meds. Fingers are crossed that it works, as they can then release her to the hotel if it does.
Right now she is sleeping - on her side, which is something she had been craving.
Thank you again to everyone there, especially Becky and Joe and Kathy and John - and to Lora and the Book Club ladies for keeping our boys and our household running - it is such a load off our minds for us.
And special thanks to Pat, again, for her great support (and for listening to my endless concerns daily) and for creation of this blog. It has been such a great help. And also to Annette and the other Jeffco nurses for keeping Jody's place warm ... She misses all of you.
We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends, and I pray we can find a way to repay each of you one day soon.
With much love,
