Still in the Hospital

Monday, March 29th I ran some errands for MawMaw. She had the scope procedure done and called soon after to say she was doing well. When I saw the phone number from the hospital appear on my cell about an hour after the procedure started, I got very nervous. It was MawMaw saying that she was out of the procedure, awake and feeling fine! They also checked her heart again and said her heart was still doing great. The chest x-ray was better, too.

Kaitlynn played outside with Mya, but then had to come in to take a nap (since she was having a major meltdown). Later, Kaitlynn and Aidan played outside with the Mya, Leah and their cousin.

Tuesday, Kaitlynn and I visited MawMaw at the hospital, then came home to babysit Aidan.

We ran some errands and I went back up to the hospital that evening. They started PT on MawMaw to get her up walking around. It was an anxious evening at the hospital. Since they were giving her so much through her IVs, they kept blowing the vein and had to keep moving the IV. Tuesday night the supervisor could not find a vein that was strong enough or not bruised. They put warm blankets on her arms and I was praying like crazy. I think we all were. When the supervisor came back in the room about 10 minutes later, as soon as she removed the first warm blanket, there was a huge vein popping through! Thankfully that vein was strong enough to put the IV in.

Wednesday, Kaitlynn, Aidan and I ran some errands. We purchased MawMaw a new pair of pajamas to wear while in the hospital. MawMaw was off her oxygen the entire day!
