Myra will be going back to Bethesda on Sunday afternoon. She will get to make the transfer in a wheelchair, rather than the usual stretcher. She's super excited about this!
Little by little, she's getting stronger. This is very good news that she has the strength to sit up long enough to make the trip!
Friday (which ,marked 3 months in the hospital) she was able to stand up and sit down 3 times, with the help of nurses. This has really given her some confidence and she looks forward to getting back to some PT at Bethesda.
They have inserted a drain into the the area where the breast was removed because of a recent fluid build up.
The infection that she's had is being treated with IV antibiotics. They used to give it to her in large doses for a half hour at a time and they figured that is what was causing her hallucinations. They are now stretching this out over a 24 hour period and tomorrow she will start oral medication.
She's really excited to get back on the healing path at Bethesda!
