It's Monday morning, and things are still going okay. She slept better last night in two hour stints. Pain is still at a seven, but the meds seem to manage it.
Dr. Wolford rounded this morning and said he was pleased. The swelling inside her mouth and everywhere around her neck is expected.
She kind of has a blank look all the time, and a frown that stays, but he said it was due to the invasions her head and neck have been through, and the fact that it throws hormones all out of whack. In addition, the anesthesia still hasn't worn off.
She's speaking quietly and in short bursts, but she's awake and aware.
We did four laps this morning, and here's a photo. She said it was okay to post it. She misses everyone and wants to be sure and let you know she's thinking about you.
Dr. Wolford said he would see her this afternoon and in the morning, then decide if he would release her to home (hotel) care maybe as early as tomorrow.
All in all, things are going well, and we are very lucky.
Thank you again to everyone for your great support and love. And special thanks to Kathleen and John and Becky and Joe for watching over the boys and keeping our household running. It is no small feat, and we will never be able to thank them enough.
