I am always cautious to not be over optimistic when a little progress is made, but, after the last few days, I will take this chance to smile! Katy’s temperature was 98.7 all morning! This is the first time her temp has been normal, with out meds to reduce the fever, in 9 weeks. As of my last visit, Katy’s temp for the day stayed between 97.8 and 100.4. I hope that this means that the antibiotics/antifungals are working on whatever was causing the fever. Only time will tell, but this is definately a good sign. Her heart rate and blood pressure were in also very good. Though she is receiving meds to help these things, I am happy that the medicine is able to get her numbers where we would like to see them. No procedures happened, today, just the relatively quiet visits of a Sunday in the BICU.
It was nice to have Betta, Thom, and Chris visit this weekend. Katy smiled so big when she saw Thom in the room, and it melted my heart. Katy was more awake for the 5pm visit, and it was nice to tell her what was happening with the kids, the house, and some of the news from back home. I am able to read some of the words that she is mouthing, and she says that she wants to go home.
I will write more tomorrow. For tonight, I am going to rest up for the week ahead.
Love to all,
