Sandra had a very nice birthday!
After being reunited with her children around noon, the guests started arriving at about 1:00. There were probably between 40-50 friends and family throughout the afternoon. Everyone who wanted to see Sandra got a chance to visit. She was thrilled to see everyone and knew exactly who they were.
Thank you to everyone who left Sandra a birthday wish on the blog! Again, she will see every one of them!
She still is not clear on why she is there and does not like it. Everyday around 6:30 she reaches a low point where the pain gets to be too much and she gets easily agitated with everything. She is uncomfortable since she hurts just about everywhere. Because she is on a liquid diet, she needs to go to the bathroom frequently which requires nurse help. And they never come quick enough to suit her. But once she gets her evening meds around 8:30 she does much better and can sleep.
All in all, she continues to improve daily at a rate which surprises even the doctors and nurses.
Glen is stable and we are guardedly optimistic. I think they might be able to operate on the broken bones in a day or two. His breathing continues to improve and once he reaches and maintains a certain level, it will be a go.
