Andrea had another great today and continues to improve. Her liver and kidney functions improved for another day and we pray for this to continue. She had a slightly elevated temperature all day and we hope this is not a sign that the infection has returned. All day she was mouthing things to me and I was able to read her lips. She said that she wanted out of the bed and I don't blame her. All day she smiled, kissed, and yawned with her mouth. Toward the end of the afternoon she said that she was tired and wanted to go to bed. We said that would be fine and we quietly let her sleep.
We hope by the end of the week we can get her out of the bed and into a chair for a period of time. Physical therapy came by today and did a little workout with her to stimulate her muscles. She appreciated the workout greatly. They also took her off the 24-7 dialysis machine and pulled all the IVs out of her hands. Now she has the minimal IVs in her groin and chest areas. Her blood pressure has gone up to a normal level without support and they let her breathe primarily on her own for nearly six hours. Overall today was wonderful and we look forward and pray for days like this one.
