Mama ER: Day 16 after surgery
They put a small feeding tube in this afternoon, and the nourishment made a difference within hours. She hasn't been eating much at all. With the energy comes restlessness and more confusion, impatience, anger, a little lashing out.
ALL to be expected.
Keep those prayers and good vibes coming. Long row ahead, still.
Hitting the hay now. I'm going in to work in the morning to do some things that *have* to be done.
They're supposed to be getting me a laptop. With one, I can do virtually everything I need to do for work from her room. She does better with someone she knows close by.
Without a laptop, I will be taking the week off, which will suck for my coworkers over the already-stressful and busy holidays. If they don't come up with one at work very soon, I'll find a way to buy one of the damn things myself.
Prayers still being sent up and thankful to see those platelet numbers coming back up. Keep being patient with the way things are going.
