Good Day

Riza's neurosurgeon just visited and she got very high marks for the day.

Her CT Scan is stable. Doc looks forward to its improving, but that normally takes time. Happily, it is not expanding, so stable is good.

I was pleased with a very peaceful day. She seemed so uncomfortable and restless yesterday. She denies being in any pain, but her breathing tube bothered her and they were shining lights in her eyes every hour. Today, the checkups are reduced, she has started some nutrition which has really helped her color and strength. She can grasp my hand VERY FIRMLY NOW -- it's great.

So, two good days and no I am not making up happy talk, it is going well.

Tomorrow is the dreaded third day, when most of swelling shows up. We're not out of the woods but neither I nor her surgeon dreamed we'd be where we are today.

Over & Out,
jk
