Uneventful Night

Last night went pretty well.  The nurses quietly slipped in and out and kept Maranda sedated and comfortable.  I got 4-5 hours of sleep...yeah!

Maranda has been dosing on and off between visits from various medical staff.  She's been asking to be rolled from one side to the other and just asked if she could lay on her stomach.  We got her positioned on her stomach and she is sleeping pretty soundly.....oops...apparently too soundly, the alarm just went off and her nurse is now in here trying to wake her and get her to take deep breaths...her oxygen rates are a bit low.  Ok, so physical therapy is due at 11....we'll be hitting the med button before we get's bound to be painful. 

I have to say I'm stunned at how quickly Maranda is coming along.  I thought it would take a lot longer for her to get moving, but she's starting to pull herself to the side, moving her legs and even asked for a few bites of applesauce.  Amazing how strong and brave she is.

Still praying that her pain is minimal and she is up and out of her in record time.
