She Fell Out Of Her Chair Today

She thought she could get up and go to the bathroom on her own. Wrong!!! Her nurse was really upset; surgeon arrived and said all was fine.

So now she is in a bed that is very low to the floor and has more guard rails. Plus there is a pad on the floor by her bed to cushion her fall if she tries again.

The transfusion really helped. She was still hallucinating, but overall she looked much better. She vividly described to me the people in her hallucinations. They never move toward her even when she goes toward them. They just back away. This all takes place in a bar.

Tomorrow her epidural comes out; if it stays in too long there is a chance of infection. She will get something else for pain.

Still no sign of food. She says she has some nausea so the doctor doesn't want to let her eat and then have her throw up.

So that's the news from Methodist Hospital, which is just south of Lake Woebegone. Corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day tonight.

I know it's not good that she fell - but in some ways, it shows that she has a fighting spirit.

Still praying.

Love the fact that what she sees is in a bar. I have never heard that one before, but it is cool. Does she recognize anyone? They are backing away because it is not her time to be there. She is to stay on this Side.

Still sending healing vibes & blessings to MN.

Take care of yourself, too.


Blessed be...

Oh gosh, thank goodness she is alright!

Maybe it's a good sign that she's wishing for some independence... even if it's a lil early for that.

I bet she goes to the bar to get her Diet Coke since no one in the hospital will serve her.
