Greetings Alley blog followers!
Yesterday, Alley had a tired out day. She started some heavy duty antirejection meds Friday night so they made her pretty shaky and tired. She was able to get up in the chair for a couple hours and than sent us all away so she could have a nap.
Today, she had more energy and felt better. She was able to go for a walk for about 25 meters ( with lots of help, of course) and the physiotherpist told her it was her best walk yet because she was breathing better. She told us today ( via pencil and paper, as she can't talk with her trach) that she could feel the bottom of her lungs for the first time. It was pretty exciting. She was also up in the chair for 5 hours today. The other exciting thing was that she was able to come off the ventolator for 3.5 hours today, just with an oxygen mask to give her oxygen. She did really well with this today.
The doctor also allowed her to have a popsicle today! Unfortunaly, it was banana, her least favorite ever, but she said that it never tasted so good.
