Happy Sunday everyone! Parm and Heidi were up early today, and the recovery continues.
Heidi looked good. She did an ultrasound early this morning to take a peek at the new liver. She came back, saying that the doctors said all is good. The nurse came by and took her blood sugar, which also came back normal. I believe the official word is that she no longer needs insulin. Yipee! Heidi’s also on a full diet now; she can have anything under the sun (hospital approved that is). It was a happy moment when I got to order apple sauce, yogurt, and scrambled eggs for her. She didn’t eat all of it, but it’s nice that she’s thinking about food again. In general, Heidi says she feels different and feels very different than when she had the old liver.
Unfortunately, Parm is still feeling pains. His bodily organs are still trying to wake up from the surgery and drugs, so that is causing him quite some discomfort. The good news is that Parm has been unhooked from his dance partner, making him pretty much wireless again. The epidural line was also removed. It’s nice to know there’s nothing tapped into his spine anymore. Right now, Parm’s just hoping his body warms up quick so he can feel like himself again. Good luck Parm!
