I got to talk to Dr. B and Denise (the PA) today. They said that the goal for today is to keep the swelling down and flush Heather's system out. Dr. B said it would be "Stevie Wonder" therapy. He then proceeded to show us what he meant by moving his head around wildly like Stevie Wonder would. I am charged with massaging Heather's neck and back with "any pathetic technique possible."
Here's a picture of Heather sitting up in a chair. That's Dr. B making fun of Heather's new hairdo. They held her hair up in an Ace bandage during surgery. Just after this picture was taken, Dr. B placed a plastic cup over her hair.
