Today we returned to the 12th floor. I don't think I was prepared for the emotions that hit me. The first two doctors who came to visit after seeing her name back on the board commented on how fast and how impressive her crashing was. after being moved to ICU for four days in a row we had to talk to different doctors about how far and what we wanted to do for Annabel. we were talked to at length about her three failures and that would be it. The last 11 days are a blur and sometime really don't see real. When Tara came by the hospital this evening she mentioned the same exact thing about arrive last Monday afternoon to a room and hallway so full of doctors working on her. She also said what really happened but I just don't want to think that deep just yet. She is with us and I want to not waste anyway not being grateful.
We are in a regular room being monitored on oxygen. She is been weaned off the fentynal/versed and having some withdrawals. She is being given Ativan which helps. They are not beginning feeds due to the large dilated bowel loops and sounds like with the weekend we won't be dealing with it either.
