Myra's heart rate and blood pressure have been stable for the last couple of days.
She has also been able to get up for a bit (with lots of assistance) and sit in a chair and even take a few steps around the room! She said it was the most wonderful feeling to be able to do that!
Her blood results have not come back yet (and we don't know what the hold up is) but the doctors do know that she has an infection in her blood. At this point, they don't know where it stems from but an additional blood test yesterday will help determine that.
She's also been working more with her kidney specialist that she's been with for years. He has changed her medications and so far so good. She's been on extra meds since she entered the hospital and he wants to give her body a chance to heal, so he's removed some of the meds and she is in the same medication boat as she was when she first went into the hospital.
She has continued with physical therapy and yesterday they taught her a leg muscle. She said she can really feel that one!
She said she's seen a change in how she feels. Her speech is better. Her hearing has been regained and she is so much more clear.
She also has higher energy levels and thinks this could be a result of the iron infusions she's been receiving.
Friday, if all is well, she should be on her way back to Bethesda.
Thanks again for all the nice comments you've sent her way- I read her every comment and she always says "well that was sweet"....so please, keep them coming!
