Friday morning Carl was sitting up in bed and anxious to get going. Some of the effects of the sedation cocktail have still to wear off but he was more like himself than he has been in the last 3 weeks.
Guess who was up taking a few steps? Indeed! We are very encouraged. Yesterday was a quiet day watching TV and waiting for a room on the Respirology floor to become available. They removed the central line from his neck. His O2 stats are fluctuating but he can maintain high numbers without his heart rate soaring. All great news!
As a precaution he is back on antibiotics by IV for another 7 days. He has a low grade fever and the doctor wants to make sure there is nothing "brewing" in his lungs. The last traces of the pneumonia are finally gone.
The staff in the ICU at the Victoria
Hospital have been magnificent not only in the care they have given Carl
but the consideration toward me. I am very grateful for their support.
We just want to be back on the transplant list and home. ♥
