So today is "Brad fly home day". Jess has made it easier for me to leave with the amount of progress she has shown.
Today so far, we went for 2 laps of the hospital floor and she has 2 more to go. The physio team have worked on her a
couple of times helping her cough up all of the good stuff. Every time Jess coughs, it feels like she is going to blow up so she
coughs with caution. Picture it.... 2 lungs shoved in a chest and 40 staples holding all of it together. Cough and it feels like the staples are going to pop out. Not fun!
Her 2 Chest tubes are draining better, her energy is better and she is now off the oxygen. It could be put back on but her O2 sats are fine right now without.
This may be the last time I blog for a while because I'm hoping Jess will tomorrow. I miss reading her funny blog posts and I'm sure she will be back as soon as possible. Even though she is doing better, she had major surgery and the pain meds make her very tired from time to time so blogging may take a little longer.
Jess is being moved to the 7th floor tonight which means the next and only move is to the condo :)
She sends her love to all!
