The early hours of this day didn't start out so great. This was the first night that the cath was out and she was up/down every hour. So sleep was not to be for either of us. One good thing about this is she was up walking every hour :) Sleep finally came for her about 4am then she was up about 0740 wanting a shower!!! I must say she LOVED the shower :) she said it felt so good to just have some hot water running over her! PT/OT also came today and they really gave her a workout & gave us homework to work on :) Trust me Taylor will make sure that Jordan has a chance to try things FIRST before she receives help from us. The workout also brought pain her way and today is the first day she had something besides Tylenol during the day for pain. Today she also learned that she would be off to Cardinal Hill for 2-3 weeks for some intense rehab. Why she understands the need for this, she was very emotional about it. In Jordan's words "can't I just fast forward and be done with all this shit? I am so ready to just be home!" Today also has been the first day that Taylor has got to spent the whole day with her. There have been lots of tears from both of the girls and Taylor was very excited to get her first "real" hug from Jordi today. We finally made it out of ICU this afternoon and are in a progressive care unit. Jordan feels very vulnerable at this time & does not to wish to have visitors. Jordan is very independent and this has been a very emotional transition having to ask for help from others :( She appreciates all the thoughts/prayers from everyone!!!
Now the physical update~Jordan's right side continues to get the feeling back a little each day, balance is also an issue, the left side of her face is still very weak, and her eyes/vision are still double. Jordan continues to have that big smile of hers despite the long road ahead. The moment of sadness that she has I keep reminding her the goal that she is working towards!
Today as I type this update my girls are both asleep, one in bed, one in a chair, & holding hands.
I am thankful God has given us this second chance with Jordan. Miracles can happen! PRAY FOR JORDAN
