Hi Everyone-Kim again here,
Just a quick update on Kerry’s brilliant progress before Christmas! She is doing so so well…….
Trachy out completely, chest sounds clear and no oxygen. Both drains out – waiting for CXR to check the right drain which fell out today during physio is safe to be left out. All iv lines should be out by end of today – lots of tablets to swallow and a sad goodbye to her iv paracetamol which she finds so effective.
Physio going well – yesterday she walked to the sink in her room!!! Incredible, first proper steps! Kerry is also happy as she is now wearing her own nightie for the first time today, it was not a sad goodbye to the hospital gowns!
She has to have 2 consecutive, clear nasal swabs before she can stop the horrid nebulisers that take 2 hours. All dressings are off her wounds which are dry and healing well. The doctors and physios are pleased with her progress as are we all!
She is looking forward to Christmas with Phil – a Christmas she didn’t think she’d see – but thanks to the kindness of the donor and family she has an exciting future to look forward to. Kerry is reading the blog when she can and has said that she is overwhelmed by all the comments and kind words, they really do help!
Lastly, Kerry, Phil and the family would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!
Lots of Love
