I only have a minute. This is hard. She is in an awful lot of pain and we are keeping her pretty medicated. We are trying to get the epidural out this morning and transition her to oral pain meds. It is so sad to see her writhe in pain and get irritated. she is having muscle spasms and she jerks involuntarily and then feels more pain. She is sleeping a lot which is good. It breaks my heart to see her like this. The hospital staff feels like she is doing as can be expected or better but she isn't their baby.
She had a pretty difficult night last night. Her IV infiltrated her ankle and caused huge swelling. She had quite a bit of pain from it. At 2 am they moved it to her wrist and that seems to be helping. She is not interested in food right now and would prefer to sleep. I'm much better with the sleeping thing than having her in pain.
She also had a really high heart rate last night and this morning indicating pain and dehydration. They have given her more fluids through her IV and that is helping a bit. She is also on the pain meds and ativan to ease the muscle spasms.
Please keep prayers going for a speedy recovery. I cannot wait until this is over.
