Mama’s appetite has gotten a lot better today – she had about half of her pancakes and banana at breakfast, most of her turkey sandwich at lunch, and all of her Cheerios and half a piece of pie for supper! She’s also starting to feed herself some – if we cut up the food, she’s pretty good at getting it to her mouth. Mama walked halfway down the hallway again, and I think she could have walked back to her room if she hadn’t gotten dizzy from turning around.
She’s still quite restless, and she’s so sick of being in the hospital. She’s really ready to go home, and she was THRILLED when they released her from the SICU and moved her to a new, regular hospital room this evening. Now the nurses will check her vitals every 4 hours instead of every hour, so hopefully she’ll get more sleep than she’s been getting. They’re also removing some of the monitors from her, and since she hates all the beeping noises, she should be more comfortable now.
