We are still hanging in there. Lauren is doing better than earlier. Still a good amount of discomfort, though the pain meds seem to be helping keep that in control. Unfortunately the pain meds seem to cause bouts of nausea which hasn’t been fun. They’ve tried a couple of different things but they haven’t worked yet. They are trying another pain med later tonight to see if that will stop the pain without the nausea side effect. Here’s hoping.
Not sure Lauren thinks it yet, but she is doing much better than earlier today, she has been stronger, has her sense of humor starting to come about a little more frequently. We are still trying to keep her away from electronic devices though as after the surgery two weeks ago we let her have access to a computer too quickly and we had packages showing up every day for a week. Apparently she online shops when she is out of it!
I will be staying at the hospital with her tonight, we have a private room and an excellent couch for me to sleep on. Hopefully the night is peaceful and she can have even more of her energy back tomorrow and we can out the nausea issue behind us.
More updates in the morning for those following along at home,
