and everything looks pretty good, although Chris’s oxygen levels are low and have been since she left recovery. She has a nerve block so most of her shoulder is numb for now. There was just one spot under her arm that really hurt, so the pain pills were started in the hospital.
Thankfully, because of my COPD, I’ve got supplemental oxygen for her to use and of course the blood/oxygen meter that has become an important part of my life. Thank you for the prayers and positive thoughts. All in all, things went fairly well.
I do need to run and get her oxygen set up, if I can get her to lay down and rest for a bit at least. Well, she can’t really lay down because of the positioning of the sling, but she can relax when she’s ready. Actually, she just came in and sat down. Time to get her set up on oxygen and a few other maintenance items that need to be done. I’ll keep you all posted!
