So it's been awhile since we posted....sorry! Rachel's last clinic appointment was March 1st. We were really surprised when we walked into Room #9 and saw a big welcome written on the white board, plus a custom made sign on the rocking chair saying it was "Reserved for Rachel Steele!" Thanks, Paige for going the extra mile and brightening our day!
Rachel is really doing well. Her creatnin level, which tells how her kidneys are functioning, was almost in normal range. So they will give her half as much fluids at night via IV. If she continues to do well, she can get her central line out soon! Yahoo! The other good news is that we don't have to go back to clinic until the 15th of March! Every other week is better than every week, eh?
She began an exercise routine this week, which is exciting. The down side is that her muscles are so sore right now that she can hardly move! Amazing what laying in a bed for 6 months can do to your body...uggh!
