Day 101

We finally made it to Kansas about 5:30 pm. The drive took us about 3 hours longer than expected. We had bad weather 80% of the way. The best thing when we arrived in Wichita was.....we had tickets to the fundraising dinner at St. Anthony's. Each year they have a fundraiser for different charities in town. The dinner is Lebanese and is always fabulous. I didn't have to make dinner after a long drive and all I had to do was unload our stuff at the clinic and go home and unload there and go to bed. I was so happy.

Sweet Nicole had a good day. PT went very well as did wound care. Megan, Nicole's nurse today, reported she will be having surgery Thursday or Friday. Her left arm is on the agenda today which I am happy about. I can't wait until her arm is finally healed. I pray that the graph this time will take. This will be the 3rd time.

Nicole's back is healing quite nicely. It is so itchy, which is a good sign. Her right arm and hand and doing exceptionally well. She has great range of motion in the arm as well as more dexterity in her hand. She is able to most things with that hand. Left arm has very limited range of motion which we are hoping this next surgery will help benefit that. Mostly it is from the elbow. PT is trying to figure out why they are not getting more range.

Nicole is having a hard time staying warm. Today she has on 6 blankets plus an extra room heater. Even with all that covering her temperature still stays normal. I hope this gets regulated soon.
