Corrine has made progress.
She got her first drink of Diet Coke yesterday!
She was so excited. They also got her into a sitting position yesterday. She said that was almost worst then having the chest tube pulled. Corrine is also able to start eating real food again. They told her yesterday afternoon that if she can eat a full days worth of meals they would take out the NG tube. That definately gave her some motivation to starting eating. She didn't really have an appetite last night, which makes it hard to want to eat. Each day there is a little bit of improvement. Corrine is also having a hard time sleeping at night, so last night they finally gave her something to help her sleep. I was thinking about it last night. It is amazing the things we take for granted in our daily lives. I do appreciate the opportunity to realize how fragile life is and that we can't take anything for granted. We never know when it can all be taken away from us.
Corrine's anxiety levels high right now, of course. And she gets overwhelmed really easy. So we are still limiting visitors to immedate family. We as her family appricate that you all understand that right now is not the best time to visit even though all of you would love to come see her. We promise when she is ready we will let you know.
