I will apologize, in advance, for this being a short blog. I am feeling very tired, and not sure if my typing would be coherent if I write too long. Here is a link to a news story that NBC 5 did.
Katy was resting this morning. We had a nice visit, and she seemed in a good mood. As is the case after they medicate her, she was confused about where she is, etc. They took her to the OR, and debrieded the stomach wound and legs. Everything seems to be healing, so they are leaving them as they are so that they may heal from the inside out. Her fever is down a little bit, but she is still 104-105 degrees. We are just keeping an eye on her white blood counts to see if they continue to drop.
The drain tube that they put in her chest to drain the blood from around her lung is not draining enough. The fluid is too thick. They took out the smaller diameter tube, and put one in that is about as big around as my finger. If the tube does not help the fluid to drain, then they will perfrom surgery next week. She is also scheduled to go in for another procedure to follow up on her stomach and leg wounds.
Again, sorry it was so short, tonight. I will write more when I can.
Love to all,
