I spent the night with Clare, 6p-6am. It’s been a challenge resting, because she’s had a warm air-filled pad on her chest, ever since surgery Friday (it’s like a small pool float). She needed a cold washrag-dabbing regularly. Her circulation is doing very well (tiny arteries in her chest had to be reattached in surgery; really amazing work). So, at 5am, Dr Ma ok’d removing the hot pad, and Clare slept so much better; about 90 min straight through!
Last night, she stepped about two feet to a chair for supper, and spent about 45 min there. A bit more walking is scheduled for today. Many thanks for all well-wishes and prayers! -Jay
