I went to see my Mom today and when we got there she was wide awake, completely alert and most of the tubes and IVs had been removed. She was doing so well, as a matter of fact, that they were in the process of transferring her out of ICU into a regular room. We were told that she would likely be in ICU for 3 to 4 days, so I was quite surprised that 1.5 days after her surgery she was well enough to go to the regular neurology floor. She is talking and smiling and all I can say is whew! I know the next few days may offer up some setbacks, but right now, things are definitely looking good. I only hope that she continues to improve like this.
Again, I am so grateful to all of you for such amazing support. I just wish I could hug you all in person because you have made me feel so much less alone during this whole ordeal. Thank you all.
Hopefully, over the next few days, I can get back to some regular blogging as I have a bunch of stuff I wanted to share with you that was finished prior to all the hoopla.
