Week 2 was all about healing and getting Naya healthy.
Half way thru the 2nd week, Naya’s appetite came back. And even though she still has stomach pain, we were able to wean her off the Morphine and Ondansetron (for nausea). Doctors identified 3 bacteria causing her infection (2 in her stomach and 1 in her CSF) and we continue with IV antibiotics for another week or so.
Our short walks are going well – 3 to 4 times a day. With Naya even breaking out into short sprints down the hall leaving dad to run along beside her with her EVD pole. She is also back to being her silly self, telling jokes and socializing with everyone she meets.
The Hospital Volunteers put on a Beach Theme afternoon. There were Clowns, games and Arts and Crafts.
Naya is loving all the emails too. We put them up on the whiteboard in her room.
And of course our visitors this week:
- Grandma Margaret
- Gong Gong
- Dennis & Jessica & Alyssa
- Monica & Zara
- Sabrina & Kyler
- Victoria & Shyla
More than half way done now…YAY!!!
