Cathy’s recovery goal for today was walking one lap around the hospital floor. She did 4. She was also in and out of bed several times and in and out of the chair many times. She’s doing great.
Pain management was a learning experience, though. Having had the “Mercedes Benz” of pain meds until today, it took a few hours before understanding how to manage discomfort and pain levels with a new system. Cathy ended the day uncomfortable but surviving. Hopefully tomorrow will look better in this area.
They say she should be able to come home on Tuesday. We’re praying.
