So it looks like another night in the ICU — but only because there are no beds available on the regular neuro ward. Also they wanted to do a post-op MRI scan and MRI was swamped today into the evening.
A bit less monitoring going tonight which allows more mobility, and I heard that Physical Therapy will come by tomorrow and give the chair a try. Will be fun when they realize Kristine’s physical strength.
Those with an “space design” bent may find this interesting> http://www.massgeneral.org/about/newsarticle.aspx?id=2771 The building Kristine is in is really quite remarkable. A lot of attention paid to human friendly spaces, and LEEDS Gold certification. Though I’m inclined to think a lot of the greenery is not real, and you know, can’t touch the vista from Kamiak 🙂
I saw Sheila’s note re music and pain. Maybe shavasana music or “this is my song”. Glad to hear about decreased monitoring. Found an article re MRIs on dogs in NY Times Oct 5 and now can’t retrieve it (no pun intended). Sending healing thoughts and virtual hugs.
So glad to hear she’ll be out of ICU once they can get her a bed. PT is going to get a big surprise tomorrow that’s for sure.
May visions of Kamiak dance in your heads…
