Our new friend that welcomed us to the floor stopped in several times to check on Jordan and let me just say he is the sweetest 9yr old! Every time he told her how he hoped she would get to feeling better soon and is just so polite and like Jordan, wise beyond his years. They tell me that he goes to every room to say hello and to give them all good wishes! Isn’t that the sweetest!
The team has already been in early this am and checked her flap and unwrapped/rewraapped her leg. At this time she also got to loose the face drain...YEAH! 1 down 1 to go! The facial swelling is worse today and that is to be expected. Tomorrow that should peak and then the swelling should start to subside. The leg drain is still putting out a good amount so don’t expect to loose that until maybe tomorrow. We did learn this am that she will have to keep wrapping that leg for 2 weeks to make sure the fluid doesn’t collect after their final drain is pulled. Dr. Hadlock also just popped in and was just overjoyed with how well things went in the OR and she is very very hopeful that when we see her in April there will be movement!
So today’s goal is to keep food down and walk! Thank you again for all of the calls,texts, thoughts, and prayers. It takes a village and at times like this I am VERY thankful for how big our village is!
