Ride in her wagon...
Well Annabel partied until 5:15 a.m. this morning. Due to the epidural being removed due to swollen and red at the point of insertion it had to be removed. I think the pain medicine had the opposite effect on her. She also began urinating with the catheter in, so this was removed today. She became tube, wire and line free today. She was also allowed to have baby food for supper today. I am trying not to get my hope up, but I would love to go home tomorrow.
As you can see Annabel went for a walk on the floor today in the wagon. Tara came and brought me breakfast and allowed me to take my shower. So then Annabel got her bath and freshened up. She loved walking or riding should I say in the wagon.
Around lunch a very good friend, Rita, who was our neighbor at our beach house came to visit. We sat and talked and you can see Annabel took to her right away. She works right down the street and she may come back at lunch tomorrow.
Just a good day free to hold Annabel and not worry about pulling anything out. All functions seem to be working well. I would be lying if I were to say I am excited at the prospect of not cathing 5-7 times daily. I do pray this procedure (even though somewhat temporary will work for longer than expected). Also her tummy has been fairly flat for several days now. Longer than I can remember in a good while.
Kathy thank you for the call this evening. It is great when you comment but so good to hear your voice and get to talk with you.
Visiting with mommy's friend, Ms. Rita...
