Last night was a quiet night – she woke up a couple of times and answered some questions for me by squeezing my hand, but mostly she just slept which was good for her. This morning she’s been very active – answering lots of questions, lifting her head for the doctor, lots of toe wiggles/thumbs up/hand squeezes. She’s been answering our questions by squeezing our fingers and also by nodding/shaking her head slightly.
About 10 minutes ago they wheeled her out to take her down to surgery to get the filter put in. The best guess estimate is that it’ll take about an hour to do the procedure, and then she’ll be back up in her room. The doctors have been very pleased with her progress this morning, and if all goes well in surgery today and she continues like she has been, they’re hopeful that they can remove the ventilator soon.
