Andrea had a rough night. A reminder that although Andrea's surgery went very well, she is still not completely out of the woods yet. She seemed to suffer from periodic muscle spasms in her arms and legs or it was part of a seizure. Andrea is currently on anti-convulsion drugs, so they might have been muscle spasms. Regardless, they seem to have happen every 3 hours (roughly) and made it a rough night for both of us (mostly for her, of course).
However yesterday and today she was all smiles. I was able to read her several jokes from this joke book her friend gave her (thanks Paul). She just laughed and laughed that I had to stop because I thought she would strain herself too much. Her parents came in to see her this morning and she was all smiles. She saw her sisters, Leigh and Alicia, and she was all smiles. I fed her a bowl of warm chicken broth, and she was all smiles. I never seen someone so appreciative for a bowl of nothing more than chicken broth.
The ICU nurse and I were able to get Andrea out of bed, actually Andrea did it mostly on her own, and she got to walk around a little. When she stood up Andrea was a little lightheaded (no pun intended), but she was able to recover and walked around for a little. Andrea then sat down in a chair and ate some pot roast, broccoli and macaroni and cheese. She basically fed herself, with me helping her cut some of her food. After I came back from getting lunch on my own, I found her standing. Andrea seem to just appreciating standing where she was.
Right now, she is sleeping with a "Law and Order" marathon playing on the TV above.
