As I mentioned before, I couldn't sleep last night, so at midnight, I went over to see Lindsay. I just can't begin to tell you how great she looks! When I was there, they had weaned the vent down to the rate of 22 and she is on 50% oxygen. I called this morning and during rounds, the consensus was that they were going to leave her there for most of the day to make sure that her pressures are doing fine and worry about the major "weening" tomorrow. Fine with me!! However, the princess is officially restrained! Yes, folks, she is trying to roll right out of her bed! So, they now have hand restraints attached so the nurses can feel a little more comfortable with leaving the bedside at least for a second without having to worry that, sedated and all, Lindsay won't either fall off the bed or pull out her breathing tube!!! YIKES!
I just wanted to thank everyone for their very special comments that you have been leaving for us. I have noticed a small trend lately that is just starting to actually sink into my head that it is soon a reality.................getting out of here and taking her home!!! WOW! By the end of the month, WE ARE GOING HOME!!!!!! sniff sniff
