Sunday Morning Update

Lauren has had her eyes open most of the morning. Amet, her transplant fellow, was by and talked to her in a super loud voice. She opened her eyes and kind of turned her head toward him. He liked seeing that. The site where her vein was taken out of her leg didn't look too great so they got an ultrasound to make sure there wasn't a blood clot. There was not, so that is good! Her blood pressure is a little low right now, but nothing like before. Her incision is leaking again, so at this moment there are two doctors in here putting in yet another stitch or two to keep it from leaking fluid. The sun is shining and it is beautiful outside. We feel like it will be a good day. today is her nurse, Kim's birthday. She is so awesome!!! We love her. Dawn, if you are reading this, she reminds me so much of you. She has a little strut to her walk and she is really funny. Bruce is at home sleeping because he worked all night. Mark came early and we ate breakfast together. Gio and Kristen are on their way!! Maybe we can go outside and enjoy the sunshine today for a little while. I will update this evening. Thanks for your support.

  1. Our group at church prayed healing over Lauren this morning and we will continue to keep her surrounded in prayer.
    Love to all - - Rod & Janice

  2. So happy to hear Lauren is making some progress! Slow and steady wins the race and that is just what Lauren is doing! She is healing in her time. Everyday is a little bit brighter! Can't wait to hear the first words she says.
    Sounds like she has an incredible medical team with her and you can't beat the family she has! We continue to send love, positive thoughts and prayers! Nancy Jensen
