We have posted all her cards, the angel star poster inititated by Aunt Loretta and created by folks who visited today, pictures of her friends...s
She is surrounded by all the stuffed animals that have been sent in. They are all dear and she talks about them and pets them. They are good "bolsters" to prop her up in bed. Rompy has been close by all the time and went into surgery with her. The nurses have bandaged Rompy's head to look like hers and we told her that Rompy is trying to feel better too. She said, "I want Rompy's head to be better so he can take his bandage off."
She has been running a low fever (99-100) which is very normal after surgeries. About 2 AM they needed to give her some blood (about 17 ml) because her hemoglobin was low). Again, to be expected in a surgery like this. She was eating and drinking earlier and seemed to be voiding well but her catheter bag is getting a bit TOO full and they have sent some of her urine off to the lab. The pituitary gland can get a bit overactive and she will excrete too much fluid. They still have her on IV fluids and are monitoring her very closely.
I will try to rest and so will sign off now.
