Wednesday Night Update


Mike here: The girls have been doing just fine. Maranda has been relaxing and taking it easy and is healing quickly. Lisa has been doing great as well. IV feeding through the night and IV antibiotics for one hour, every eight hours. High maintenance to say the least but happy and comfortable and definitely her ol' self. Last night her IV pump only pumped about half of the nutrition in for some reason but she was more interested in solid food today so I think that was a good sign. We'll watch that and see if the pump hiccups again tonight and replace it if it does. Really, I'd be interested in cutting that off completely and see if her solids appetite comes back quicker.
Tomorrow Linda is taking Lisa to Metro Airport. Lisa was invited by the Child Life Specialists at Mott's to fly to the North Pole to see Santa. They'll board a plane and taxi to another terminal where Santa will be waiting. Pretty cool. I'm sure Linda will capture the moment and share some of the moments with us. Stay tuned for that update.
