Well I travelled down to Toronto to see my amazing sister in law today and she looked INCREDIBLE!!! She was sitting up in a chair and had the most amazing colour to her face that I have seen in a long time. You can even see her rosy cheeks in the picture! :) It is hard to believe that this girl just had a brand new heart placed in her chest less than 48 hours prior!!!!!
And of course my smiling little man in the waiting room....he isn't able to go in to see his Aunty A while she is in the ICU.
She is having some pain in her right arm and hand but the doctors figure it is from either the way she was positioned for the long hours (during surgery), or perhaps one of her many many needles hit a nerve. As well both legs don't have much feeling and are "tingly" so they are keeping an eye. Neurology was in tonight to see her but no word on their thoughts or the tests they want to run.
I wasn't able to spend a lot of time with her today as she had already been sitting for quite a while and she needed to rest before physio was to come at 3pm. I am proud to say that she did do SOME walking later on this afternoon!!! She amazes me every minute that I think of her. And I am just SO SO SO proud to call her my sister!
The doctors are just amazed at how well she is doing and so are all of us!!!!!!!!!!!!
One other thing....I am asking people to leave a little "note" on their thoughts/feelings/good wishes for Andrea. I am going to make up a little book for her and I am hoping to give that to her on Christmas Day. I think she would LOVE to see how many people are thinking of her. Well I don't think, I know. Aren't I just one kick ass sister in law?! hahaha
So keep those prayers a coming...they have definitely worked thus far!
