Onwards and Upwards

This week Hobbit has been practising standing on one foot some more and reports that "Although it still scares me silly to be standing, I am doing it longer each time"

Tommorrow they are going to attempt to get her into a wheelchair for an hour or so. They tried it once before but it was aborted because she suffered from leg cramps that were too painful to endure.

She continues to need dialysis every other day and occasionally blood transfusions as well.

Her white blood count has elevated slightly again so they are watching that carefully and if it continues to rise they will put her back into surgery and re-open the wound again to clean it out. If this happens it will be the fourth time they have had to do it since her original surgery on the 4th of July.

She is eating better now that the hospital has implemented a system where she can pick her own meals so although she is no longer losing weight she is at least gaining strength.

More will be revealed later. HeHe
