Sorry for the lack of update last night. Apparently the mobile site isn't so good at actually posting things when you hit post. Ah, Betas...
Anyway, she was finally taken upstairs around 7:00 and promptly fell back asleep. Which is a good thing. Sadly she missed just about all of the Sox game but there will be more and sleep is a precious commodity when you're being woken up every 2 hours for ice checks. I stayed around until 10:30ish (the Sox game ended was a coincidence, I swear) then went home to a very confused kitty. We played a bit and then just as I was dropping off I got a call from work about an alarm on an incubator. Lovely. Because what I wanted to do at midnight after being up since 5 am was go change a CO2 tank. But my mother lied and everything isn't really about me so enough about that.
I dropped in briefly before work this morning and chatted with the nurse who said she (swerve, not the nurse) had a good night and seemed comfortable. Apparently she (still swerve) had complained more about pain in the right hip (where "all" they did was remove the screws) than the left which was odd to me but she (the nurse this time) said that the epidural might have been more targeted to the left hip. We agreed that was probably for the best. She (back to swerve again) briefly stirred when an ortho tech came to install the monkey bars/trapeze but I'm not sure she fully processed that I was there. Again, this is a good thing.
When I run over after work (after a stop at home to feed the kitty (not a euphemism) and change) I'm planning on taking her computer in so depending on how awake she is you might here from the rock star herself tonight.
Thanks for all the thoughts and notes. They're very much appreciated.
