Today has been a quiet day for both my patients.
Murray is stable and has been moved out of ICU into HDU (High Dependency). His lungs are recovering but his kidney still needs a bit more time. He will have dialysis tomorrow - I think today's creatinine was 480.
Ashlea has had a quiet day. Her creatinine was 26 again this morning and her doctors are very happy with her. She is almost ready to come home - she just has to tolerate all her feeds and no longer need the good pain drugs.
I'm sorry to tell you all though that I had to chop Ashlea's hair - and before you all get upset with me I had trouble even getting the scissors through it - let alone a comb! We tried conditioner, moroccan oil and detangler all applied in a greasy cocktail - to no avail. This is what I chopped out! And yes - I have asked a hairdresser friend to come and give her a proper hair cut!!
Thanks for your ongoing support - there is no way we could get through this without it. Thank you for all the cards, texts, emails, gifts and visits. A big thank you for all the chocolate - I have it coming out my ears!!
