We arrived at the NSCU at 10 a.m. when visiting hours "officially" start. She was pretty groggy and nauseous from the anesthesia when we arrived but that quickly improved. Dr. Verma visited us first and changed her dressings and showed us how to stretch, massage, etc. to increase her mobility. Dr. Kula came by shortly after that on rounds. He is the neurologist from TCI. He seemed pleased with how she was doing. They gave her something more for the nausea and that passed shortly thereafter.
Around noontime they moved her out of the bed and she is now sitting up in a chair and getting more active. She is now working on an exciting lunch of Coke and cherry italian ice.
All to report for now.
