Almost Noon 6-5-09


I am not avoiding posting today, just been kinda slow around here and we haven't seen Dr Walpert yet. She is in the OR doing about the same thing she did to Mom to our neighbor Marie's fact, he is going to be in the room right next to us when he comes to the floor.

Amy, the physical therapist has been to visit this morning and Mom has officially graduated from PT. She is able to perform all the requirements on her own...walking (with a walker), going up a couple of steps (it will be later in recovery before she will attempt a flight of stairs), getting in and out of bed on her own, and together we have been taught the "correct" way to get Mom into her back brace.

The vampires drew some blood early this morning. Turns out her Hemoglobin & Hematocrit are really low...low enough that she is most likely going to end up with a blood transfusion...we will know more when Dr Walpert makes rounds. Mom is asymptomatic but does look a tad pale. I am sure if they transfuse her it will make her feel even better.

Her personal assistants just arrived to get her cleaned up for the day, so I have moved out to the "common" waiting area to give them their privacy.

Please stay tuned as there will be more to come later today and hopefully pictures too!
