Thursday was a slow day of delays. Heather got up for breakfast, but when she got back into bed she had some pains in her chest near her left shoulder. The doctors on the floor got worried and did an EKG. They said the EKG didn't look quite right so they did some blood work. The blood work came back normal, but they wanted to do it again in the evening.
After that little scare the doctors didn't want Heather to get up and walk. She really wants to and I think the delay is frustrating her. She continued her Stevie Wonder exercises and I massaged her neck and back.
The good news is that the evening blood work came back normal. Last night they moved her out of the NSICU to a regular room.
