Day 4 ICU Update #1

I got there for the 10am visit a few minutes late. Dad was already in there. The nurse wrote out the alphabet. She will point to the letters to tell you things if she doesn't feel like writing them. She was aggravated with dad because he couldn't tell what she was spelling. We FINALLY figured out she was saying Margaret Ann, her principal. Then she asked if we had been keeping Kristy updated. Dad said, "do you want Kristy to come see you?" She nodded yes, with a shrug which we took as if she has time. So Kristy, no pressure or anything but you have been summoned! LOL! She wrote your number down and I think dad tried to call you.

She was hot. The nurse told her she could get a fan if she didn't cool off after we turned the air down. She was sitting up a little bit in the bed and had her glasses on. She had the remote in her hand and was trying to find something to watch on TV. Not much on a Saturday.

Said she didn't sleep good last night because there was another man in ICU that hollered all night. Dr. Kim said if it got to hard for her to rest in ICU they might move her to a room before Monday but I doubt they do. They are going to put her in a chair tomorrow. She hopefully will get that trache out on Monday. I know she is ready to have that out.

The nurse that I really like (Cherry) is with her today. Cherry said mom is doing well "ABOVE THE CURVE" (her words not mine) so that made us proud of her and how strong she is.

I'm so glad she is doing so well - I know y'all are all glad that this is behind her and things will surely get easier and better each day now - nothing left to dread! We're thinking of you still!!
