Slow and Steady Wins the Race
It was a rough night, but not nearly as bad as Monday night for Becky. She couldn't get much rest because of the nausea and bathroom trips, but the pain seemed to be a lot better. Mom and I stayed with her through the night, helping with the bucket and the bathroom, but really mom did most of the helping. I did a fair amount of head rubbing, though:-) Today, applesauce was a better choice to try and she was able to keep down a bit of a pancake. The double vision is continuing, but it probably will for a few more days. The best part of the day for me was seeing Becky walk up and down the hall! The physical therapists came to walk her around and she shuffled all the way down the hall in both directions, making sure to get to the window at one end to see the fabulous view over Portland. The hospital really is in a beautiful location, and I'm sure the scenery is a big help for people! Thanks to everyone who wrote comments in to the blog! When Becky is feeling up to it, I print them off in large type for her to read, and they've been a wonderful help. Things are going well so far! Mom and I will rest a bit now and be back with another update as soon as possible.
