The pain team is going to allow the epidural bag to run out and then start A oxycotin IV. Yikes. They're going to leave the epi in, though, in case something happens or if the IV pain meds don't work well enough.
Y'all should see her. She is such a NUT! After her last surgery they had to release her without taking her b/p because she was so violently opposed to it. THINGS HAVE CHANGED! She has decided that having her temp taken, her b/p taken and having her heart listened to are the most amazingly fun things. Whew! As a matter of fact, one of the care partners brought her a spare thermometer
I had to raise the rails of the crib because she's so chipper today and is standing up a bit. Which means, of course, that she's constantly tangled in all of her wires and has pulled the leads of her chest twice already this morning. Still, it's heartening to see her cheerful.
Thanks to everyone for the sweet messages. They mean a lot.
