I saw Heather again at 7:30 tonight and she's still looking good. She's working through the pain of a low pressure headache, but we knew she would get one. She was having a hard time looking down to see me standing by her knees. I squatted down and rested my nose on the side rail so she should see me better. I said, "Killroy was here," and that started her giggling. Giggling is not a good thing to do when you have a low pressure headache. (correction: The giggling hurt her back and stomach muscles. They were really tight from the surgery.) I had to look away for a while and start telling her about the trouble with the calling card to get her out of a silly mood.
After she calmed down I read her all of the blog entries today. She loved to hear the comments you all wrote. Keep them coming! She's scheduled to move to a regular room at 8:45 tonight. Tomorrow at 1:00 in the afternoon they are going to start sitting her up. They will raise the head of her bed about one degree every one or two minutes until she's sitting up at 60 degrees.
Perhaps she'll be ready to make or take calls Wednesday evening.
