I'm sorry that yesterday was a horrid day. You're right- let's start today with a clean slate. Sunshine and optimism all the way!

It sounds as though at least one thing is heading in the right direction. Keeping on with the hopes and prayers that everything else follows suit, and that your Snowy starts to come back to you!

Hugs to you and the rest of the family.

Update after cons meeting at 12 noon

Ok its me again, and yes the sun is still shining (in fact is dam warm!)

Just seen cons, he’s very happy that temp down another degree yest to 105, and certain now that this new cocktail of drugs is starting to work. Repeated test results from yest also show some more positive signs so all in all (dare I say it ???) I think we might be heading in the right direction.

I asked when he thought they might try and extubate her, didn’t really get a straight answer on that one (think politicians and dr’s are trained the same way!), but didn’t expect one either…but worth an ask lol

Guess now its more of being trying to be patient, he said if her heart rate remains stable over another 24 hrs, temp goes down a little bit more and the next set of results are equally positive she will be taken off the critical list… (Now I have always wondered if that’s just a phrase or if there actually is a written list ?? humm something to ponder on in the wee small hours no doubt!)

I’m off now to have some lunch with Andrea's parents & Sister (before all of you nag me again!) and then later on I’m going to pick Lewis up from school, and spend a little time with him before I come back here, hope you are all ok.

........Was just thinking though that 14 days ago she was just out of hospital from her mammoth 31 day spell, looking forward to getting back to normal, totally enjoyed spending the first night In her own bed, and then what seemed like a fairly insignificant attack around 4pm that day could of spiraled so much that we end up where we are now 2 weeks on….. Scarey eh!

Take care

Alex

Alex, so glad to hear there's some good news and things are better than yesterday! Was really happy this morning to see the thread title, bit worried about the update before I read it but great that more positive news about the drugs and tests - long may it continue and crossed fingers things stay stable and she does get off that possibly mythical list soon.

Hope you enjoy your lunch and your time with Lewis and hope to see you back here later with some more positive news. xx

Come on snowygirl you of anyone should be able to answer my question of the critical list..... it is just a saying or is there a clipboard somewhere with a list of names on it ?? lol

Alex

there are a team known as critical care team/ outreach team in ITU where i work and in other trusts i been into costa - and they visit the 'critical' patients moreso as well as others who arent as critical, so they have a 'list' of both critical and 'notso' critical. so andrea be moved one step down :D hehe

so yes there is a list lol, not a myth x

p.s. 2 weeks ago today, day when she got admitted, around this time, i spoke with her on the phone, with the cat lying across her lap :-)

the critical care team dont discharge you from their care until u in HDU at least though....

Thank God her temperature has gone down some more and she is stable. I will ask my praying friends to continue praying, as the doctors do their bit and Snowy immune system functions properly and Alex remains upbeat. Glad lewis is keeping u busy with school run. Be sure we will do our bit everyday.
