Hey all
I just got home from the hospital. Sat with Tina most of the day. Her day started with a lot of pain. For some reason the nurses said they were behind in the pain management – something to do with the epidural not working right for several hours. By the way, the epidural was removed today about 1:30. Today Tina said she wanted to try sitting up so about 3:00 this afternoon, she sat up on the edge of the bed for about 5 minutes which was a big milestone considering how the morning went!
About 4:30 she was wheeled down in her bed for a chest x-ray to check for pneumonia since her temperature has been up a little. When I left we did not yet have the results.
I feel horrible leaving her there alone – but I only have a few hours to try to get some things done, try to sleep, get to church, and then get back to the hospital.


  1. Thanks for the update...I've been worried all day.

  2. I guess today is a better day because you are bound and determined to shower! Hopefully you'll be in the mood for some pretty PJs soon too. :-)
