Today was another great day for Andrea and we all love watching her make improvements. There is still the concern of an infection (she had a temperature today), but other than that we are very excited about her progress. Her liver numbers went back up (we want them to go down) a little, but this could be explained by the infection. I believe that we caught this one in time and she will improve quickly. They removed the catheter for dialysis from her groin today, which was probably the source of the infection. This should turn the liver numbers around quickly if this was the source. Her kidneys are still showing signs of improvement and her blood pressure is great.
Physical therapy came by today and did some exercises with her and she loved it. She sat up on the side of the bed for ten minutes on her own. The therapist was amazed by her strength. She also did arm and leg exercises. We will doing these exercises with her three times a day from now on. She is so happy to be doing exercises so her body doesn't get any weaker. It was so amazing to see her do those things today. She is so strong.
Her family and I have become experts in reading lips and trust me the last few days she has had many things to say. She wants everyone to know that she appreciates all the support. Please keep your prayers coming and we will get her through this terrible disease. If there is anything you would like for me to tell her on your behalf please comment to one of the posts and I will be sure to read it to her. Talk to everyone tomorrow. God Bless.
