It was a really good day today. Natalie looked great this morning; her color is better, and she was very attentive and interactive. Oh yeah, and the Vikings beat the Packers!!!!! We’re going to the playoffs!!!! Oh, sorry, got sidetracked.
Everything looks really good for Natalie. They’ve taken her off of her steady drips, and everything is given to her intermittently now. We’ve been able to feed her with a bottle. She’s kept down the Pedialyte, but milk hasn’t stayed down so well yet. They’ll be watching this week to see how her feeds go and wean her off of the sedatives they still have her on. They think we’ll be moved out of the ICU sometime this week, and then we’ll probably still be here for about a week after that. They’re still not sure, that’s very tentative. We’re ready to get home.
We went uptown yesterday and had some really good Italian food. We also got to see Paul Revere’s house and a couple of other cool historical sites. We were going to go to Mike’s pasties, but the line was out the door. There is no pastry that’s worth waiting in line that long. It snowed here yesterday, so that was cool. It was a pretty walk to the hospital this morning.
That’s about all we know. Hopefully, we’ll know some more tomorrow. Go Vikings!!!!!!!!
