Holding Her Own Through Day Three

Riza's nurse called her "our miracle girl" today. Riza would hate that sobriquet, but I loved it.

She was a little more sedated today as they added a small amount of morphine. Her Doctor just wants to be sure that she is comfortable and doesn't worry. I told Steven that I would bring in some stones records so that she could really enjoy it.

Good news from all the nurses, her Doc, and all the machines that monitor her. It was a tough day, when most patients show a lot of degradation yet Riza held her own.

There is a family conference at the hospital tomorrow (Wednesday) at 130 pm. The head of the Neuro nurses will summarize her condition and answer questions. Call me if you want to come, else I will summarize it here tomorrow night.

And one more thanks for all the kindness directed at me. You folks are great, and yes, I'm okay...
