A weekend away from electronics. Playing with my babies and spending time with my husband.. It was just what I needed to know that I was strong enough to keep going and everything was going to be alright.
The ICU doctor came in to discuss a plan. "Capri is just barely treading water. She is in no way out of the woods, We are still at a point where she could be re-intubated and still need a trachea" I hate mondays because its a new doctor and they are just learning about capris case. Monday doctors always seem more worried about her stability. After a few days they seem to be less concerned. I hope that this is the case this week.
Because of both of these issues we will still be in Rochester for awhile. She is thinking the end of February to the beginning of march. We are going to be a fourth of the way into the new year and have only spent 4 days at home. I hope that this week she will rest and her vocal cord will heal and next week she will have a much more positive outlook.
With all of this i am so grateful that these setbacks are all temporary. We have not had to deal with anything that is going to be a permanent problem. She eventually will heal. It is taking a lot longer than we had hoped but this isnt something we will need to deal with for her entire life. We can do this!
