We thought we were going home today but Teresa needed to have a pulmonary angiogram CT . We tried it without sedation but the Boss decided she did not want to lay still. So now it has been rescheduled for Tuesday morning with sedation .
The CT is being done to see why her left lung is only receiving 30% of oxygen .
For the most part she has been doing really well . She is tolerating the nightly feeds and Ed and I have been trained on how to administer them and insert the NG tube. She does not like the NG tube at all and has voiced her opinion that she IS NOT going home with it . She doesn't want anyone to see her with it .
Today she really enjoyed the arts and craft therapy session . The art therapist came to her room and spent a lot of time with her . She loved it . The therapist commented to Ed and I that she thought Teresa was special and had a very engaging personality . Teresa also spent a lot of time with her wonderful nurse while Ed and I were in "Class" to learn about the NG tube . Apparently they had a very lengthy conversation about everything . When the supply person came in her room to restock her medical supplies , she informed him that it was O.K. with her if he used her hand sanitizer and that he could come back and visit any time . . She enchanted everyone she met today .
We also had a visit today from a Blog friend and her two beautiful daughters . Teresa loved visiting with them and showing them all her special treasures that she keeps in her fabulous purse .
Hopefully if all goes well tomorrow we will be headed home !
