Sunday Morning Update

*Updated Post*
I forgot to mention that the on call neurosurgeon came by and said that this mornings x-ray looks pretty much the same as yesterday. She has still had a significant improvement since Wednesday but the past couple of days have not changed much. He said Isabelle's doctor might put more weights on tomorrow to see if this will help her spine straighten more. Pray that is does!

Isabelle finally fell asleep last night around 5:30pm and as of 9:45pm when we left she was still asleep. From what the nurse told me she slept all the way until 11:30pm. When he came in to check on her and flush her IV he realized that the IV was actually leaking a little bit so he had to take it out and move it to her arm instead of on her hand. Apparently she had a little freak out when he did this so they gave her some more morphine. Other than that she is doing pretty well. She was in a great mood from the time we got there at 8:30 until about 10:30 when she had another come apart. We don't know the exact reason she continues to have these meltdowns. She is on Motrin and Tylenol for pain and from what I have been told the pin sites probably are not hurting her that badly. It is likely a mixture of being uncomfortable and the fact that she has not had a bowel movement in a couple of days. Hopefully soon though!

I will be leaving today at 12:30 to go to work and will not be back until 5:30 or so so I will update again sometime after that.
