Back to Cardinal Hill Update

Well, we have been back to the hill since Tuesday & it hasn’t been without some excitement!!!  We arrived late Tuesday & didn’t really do much but get settled back in.  Jordan ran a fever again on Tuesday night & also had some nausea :(  So, Wed morning we were back to having some blood cultures, doing labs, & watching her VS pretty close.  Evaluations continued on Wed morning despite the fever that she had throughout the night.  Jordan said she had work to do and was feeling ok to go ahead with PT/OT/SLT evals.  Some good news was that speech discharged her after their evaluation because that was their plan before she went back to UK last week.  Wed late afternoon brought on another fever but she has been fever free for about 24hrs.  FINGERS CROSSED it stays this way :)

Today Jordan walked on the treadmill with assistance!!!  I am so proud of her & must say it brought tears to my eyes.  David, her PT, has been wonderful with her and always encourages her with a quote from the Bible. Our second God sent person is Molly, her OT.  Today they did something that was fun! She & Molly used water guns to take shaving cream off of a mirror!  It was such a fun & summertime thing & Jordan loved making a mess inside.  I must be honest; all the people that we have come into contact with @ the Hill are absolutely wonderful!  Everyone here always has a smile on their face & an encouraging word to give the patients & families. 

Jordan continues to have that great spirit about things, how she continues to have this is beyond me.  If I was in her shoes, I would have done wanted to crawl underneath a rock!!!!   So, Jordan is back to work & until the next update!  PRAY FOR JORDAN :)

  1. I've been following along with your updates - I'm so sorry that her temp keeps spiking, must be awful. Her life has changed so much this past month, but I'm glad she has such a supportive family.

    Sometimes it can be hard to stay positive, and as one reader put it - it's okay to cry and let it out. I'd say that was the hardest part for my family, letting me be upset about everything. Letting it out lets it go - then you're ready to move on (advice for both of you!).

    Take care, and I look forward to more updates.
