Every morning we look forward to a doctor and a nurse practitioner coming by to review Liv’s health. Every morning they go over every detail from the day before, all of her lab results and plans for the day. They always take all the time we want to answer all of our questions and to make sure we are comfortable with what is going on. We are so grateful for all of the Riley staff!
This morning started out very uncomfortable again for Liv. We got some good news when the doctors talked about things that need to happen before we go home! I thought this was great news because it means Liv is improving fast. After the doctors left Liv got pretty upset because the thought of going home feeling miserable did not sound so good to her. I had to remind her that they will not send her home feeling so bad. The doctors can tell that she will be feeling better soon. We are hopeful that early next week Liv may be able to leave the hospital and move to our apartment that is nearby!
This afternoon OT (occupational therapy) came and got Liv up to walk the halls and play a game! After that she has stayed in a chair for quite awhile watching Netflix. She has been drinking some juice and even tried a bite of yogurt! The yogurt had no taste to her and she decided not to try anything else tonight. She had a very good afternoon! I expect tomorrow morning to start a little ruff again but there is no doubt she is quickly improving!!
