Well, it really is the "same old" routine around here - lol! Wake up, breakfast, therapy, rest, therapy, lunch, nap, therapy, rest, dinner, bedtime cares, bed. Maia had a better day today. She was able to eat a little more at lunch and dinner. Small emesis this evening, but managed to get medications in with only a bit of gagging/retching, no vomiting. This is progress - sad as it may sound. She drank a total of almost 800ml today so IV fluids of 700ml are infusing overnight. Urine output remains poor, but hopefully will improve tomorrow.
Therapy went all right, also. She will continue PT and OT through the weekend. The PT plans to try having Maia walk using this fancy contraption where she is basically in a harness kind of thing that holds her up instead of having human support. She is a stinker and will lean on others if given the chance. This machine will force her to use her own strength a bit more. Discussed a special toilet chair for Maia with the OT. Initially, we didn't think it was necessary but have decided it will make things a whole lot easier in caring for those needs.
This afternoon, we (Mark, Maia, and I) were able to visit a member of our church who happens to be in the hospital as well. Although I'm sorry that he is here, it was wonderful to spend time with D and his family. Sometimes I feel a bit like we are in isolation here.
I wish I had the energy to blog more tonight, but I'm wiped out. Just wanted to update on how things are going. Will have more time tomorrow.
