I don't have much to update, other than good news! Briley finally got out of the wheelchair around midnight last night! She felt very good sitting in that dang wheelchair for that long, it was a big step forward! We transferred her over to the bed, and she wanted to watch Cars, again. Finally about 1:30, I turned off the tv and we both slept very good. She did wake up around 3:00 with pain & discomfort, so she pressed the pain button and that's been the last time it's been used up to this point!
We slept the rest of the night up until about 8:30 this morning. We both woke up and Briley has been feeling great. She sat up in bed by herself for the first time! She's been coloring all morning. Ate a little bit of cereal, and is now talking on the phone with Alicia. She has not complained of any pain other than a wrinkled sheet underneath her foot.
The surgeon came in earlier and said things are progressing nicely. They will take out the foley cath at some point. So we have to learn how to use a bed pan. Her fever is also gone this morning! That is huge! She will be here another 2-3 days depending on fever & ANC. We will be doing a few transfers over to the wheel chair today and her continuous pain meds will be stopped.
Her ANC dropped again. Now it's 180, so she's still neutropenic. Her hemoglobin & platelets are doing very good!
Gloria's funeral is today. Alicia has actually seemed fairly upbeat about things. Her and Jessica found a bible verse out of the blue that Gloria had written down. The verse fitted Gloria perfectly and that one verse has helped Alicia & Jessica cope with her passing.
Alicia, Mom, & Bryson will come back Cooks this afternoon after the funeral and lunch. Briley is ready to see her momma!
