T is still amazed at how different it feels for her to think and speak. Her voice is clear and she doesn't catch on words as much as before the surgery.
She is still oozing from much of the suture line on her scalp, but the surgeon seems unconcerned and says it looks good. She still has the morphine pump available, but has been trying to get along without using it. She is getting by for now with a pain pill every 4 hours and they have taken out the large arterial IV. She still has a smaller one into the back of her left hand.
T was up and sitting in a chair for a good while this afternoon and also was up and standing with the physical therapist. Reading is not yet something she is able to do for very long at a time. She has looked at some of the posts here and can even manipulate the keyboard enough to advance down the page, but she is not really able to type yet.
Her spirits remain high and she has received lots of loving and attentive care from Kearney and Anna Shea today. We are very lucky to have them here and helping.
