Earlier today Lace was out of bed and walked around the room and out into the hallway just a bit with a walker. She did real well and probably could have gone further but they are being conservative with her because her sodium levels are still a little off and they want to get that corrected before going hog wild with the activity. Also, because her levels were still not where they want them to be, she will be spending tonight again in the NSCU. But we expected 2 days here from the beginning, so no worries. She continues to make good progress and is looking pretty chipper this evening. I am optimistic she will be out of the NSCU tomorrow and she will likely also lose her catheter then and be walking the halls. So, that is a preview of tomorrow.
Also, below are some pics of Lace. The shot of the back of her head is from the day after surgery when they changed her bandage dressings. The other two shots are from today and that is the ace bandage "turban" they've had her wearing all along. Kind of looks a little like Bert (from Sesame Street) meets I Dream of Jeannie with her hair tumbling out the top!!!
