Today has been much more active than yesterday. The nurses had the DQ up and walking, and also want her to sit in the wheelchair for 2 hours a day. She was antsy and wanting to get up and out, but the moving to the chair is tough. In the afternoon, she asked to go outside. We took her to the beautiful garden they have outside for some fresh air. She was tired and ready to go back in after only about 5 minutes, but I made her wait 5 more minutes.
Tonight they'll have her walk a little more, and then tomorrow, stairs!
She has been so tough throughout this whole process.
Before another round of pain meds came, she was cranky and kind of yelling at me. Later, she apologized, but she totally has a pass.
