Turn the page

Complete turn around today.

Mom was even awake when I went in.
She had her room to herself at the time I arrived, but it was set up for arrival of
a new patient.

Mom's foley came out at 0600.
She had a shower.
Bladder functioning.
And she is allowed to sip fluids.

Still having some abdominal pain, but that is to be expected.
The ET nurse was in to change her bag today, and she'll be back Friday. I'll go to learn how to do it as well.

We went for quite a walk today, all the way from the unit to the new elevators on level 2 and back. They have rocking benches in the atrium but they need some lubrication! Squeaky squeaky.

Had a good rest after we got back to the room, and Beth stopped by.

Yay progress! On our way to getting her out of the hospital, and I can't be more excited. Friday will be 3 weeks.

Ate Swiss Steak for supper courtesy of the Adamchick's. Was delicious!
