Out of the ICU Today!
Becky hates the ICU... it is always where she feels the worst and it always seems to take forever for time to pass until she can get into another room. This time, her surgery was much earlier in the day, so she spent more time in the ICU, but she was much less sick than the last time, so it was a bit of a double-edged sword. In fact, I don't think she's thrown up once... but she does still feel nausea and does have pain, both at the incision site and on her leg, where she has a bruise, but she thinks it might be a blood clot. The plan is to get that checked out with an ultrasound this morning. She'll also be moved to her own room at some point today, but they aren't yet sure when, since it really depends on when a bed becomes available. Hopefully we'll get to talk to the doctor this morning as well for a debrief on the procedure and some more details on the results. Stay tuned!
