Hospital Stay - Day 33 - Real Steps - Real Progress

Jodi had a good's night's rest. She's eaten quite a bit and continues to feel hungry between meals. She's taken a shower (sitting down), by herself, including washing her hair. Tolan dried and combed it.

With Tolan on one arm and me on the other, Jodi has made it around the big loop of nurses stations on the floor from NACU to IMCU and back two different times. She's also sat up on the couch for about 45 minutes.

Right now she is resting from all that exertion, but she has done very well. She's rating her headache at a '4' on a 10 point scale. Of course, that's with the aid of the Loritab, but that's always been the case.

All-in-all, she is doing very well. Could tomorrow be the day she is doing well enough to actually go home? If this progress continues it could very well be!

Yahoo! This is great news. We can't wait to know you're going to be home where you can actually be comfortable again. Well, you know, as comfortable as you can be under the circumstances.

Slowly, but surely, you're on your way.

Going home tomorrow would be great. (Then when you were up to something delivered from Burger Bar it would still be hot or frozen.) In all seriousness, you have been like superman (woman) jumping tall buildings in a single bound (or climbing stairs, sitting up and all that good stuff.)Lisa and I are so happy for you. Way to go woman! Love, Wendy
