Here it is, almost a full two weeks since Abi's accident and God's miricles keep unfolding. She had surgery this morning (#6) to remove the filter in her vain to catch any blood clots. All went well. As usual the timing changed. She was scheduled for sometime around 11:30, they came and got her at 7:00 and she was back in her room and texting me at 9. She is very up beat and smiling alot. She has had some visitors and more are coming up. She is excited to see how much everyone has cared about her. She is gaining strength every minute. When she needs to use the restroom she only needs help getting our of the bed and then to keep her steady. With the clam shell brace, she is a little top heavy.
She is indeed a miricle. Two weeks ago there was some doubt that she would make it at all. The next day or so we were told she would be in an induced coma for 2-4 weeks, maybe more. Then Friday she was moved to IMCU, then this past Friday to Ortho Trauma Unit where she was only on the feeding tube and a couple of IV's. Pain meds are at her request. When she gets to a pain level of 4, she will call the nurse and they will give her the meds. She says her pain level doesn't get up to more than a 5. Tomorrow she is moving again. This time to the Rehab unit. We are not sure how long she will be there, but my thoughts are not more than a week. When they feel like she can manage to get around by herself she will be discharged to home.
We can't express how blessed we have been by yur prayers.
