Wendy is be allowed to drink small sips of water today as they start to graduate her beyond ice chips. She started receiving nutrients through her PICC line last night.
Her intestines and bowels are waking up! Woohoo!
It is getting more difficult for the nurses to draw Wendy's blood. As soon as the PICC line has been flushed and is more established they should be able to start drawing blood from it.
- Nurses are able to draw blood from her PICC line soon.
- Wendy doesn't experience extreme hot flashes or "ICU psychosis" anymore.
- The pain management team finds the perfect balance of pain medication.
