Husband reporter back at ya. Karyn’s night in the ICU went very well. She is, to the surprise of absolutely no one who knows her, crushing it. She’s speaking, moving all four limbs and the fingers & toes attached to them. Everything you want to see post-craniotomy. This morning the question, “How are you feeling?” was answered with, “Hungry.” A great sign.
In fact, she’s doing so well that she’s scheduled to leave ICU as soon as a room opens up. That’s ideal for a few reasons, not the least of which being she will get better sleep. The ICU room’s revolving door of amazing nurses, doctors and more nurses all doing neuro checks or taking vitals means little of that rest they keep saying is so important.
One nice anecdote to share: the nurse was very respectful of Karyn’s awesome “Sisu” tattoo when putting in her line (one of three). No damage done to the art work!
