Improving

Cindy was moved out of ICU last evening to stepdown. We were able to see improvements just over the several hours that we were there. She only said a word or two at a time when we first came (kept asking" what time?") but was saying sentences (with effort) by the time we left. She couldn't believe it was Monday. Her blood pressure was a bit low, but she knew her name and where she was. She just couldn't think who the president was. She looked pink, her face was no longer puffy, off the ventilator and by evening, off most all her tubes. It really is quite amazing what a body can go through and in a few days have such improvement! Warren went back to work today and I needed a day to just be at home. Our son stopped to see her after work and tonight she was going to watch American Idol and the Cavs game on the large flat screen TV in her room :) So things are going well and we're hoping it keeps going that way! It was just last Tuesday when she had the surgery to put the rod in her leg. Whew, what a week...

Praise God that Cindy is doing well. American Idol and Cavs game sound like good medicine for her! Take care.
