Off the Nitric . . .

. . . but in flutter. They took Bailey off the nitric today around 12:30. She's done fine so far, but has been quite nauseous all day. When they do the cardioversion tomorrow, they are going to scope to see if they can find an ulcer or anything that might be contributing to or causing her nausea. She's apparently been going in and out of flutter for 2 days now, but is pretty much in flutter now.

We're still in ICU. Dr. D has put a request in for a bed on the heart center but, unfortunately, they're full right now. We're hoping they send someone home tomorrow so we can squeeze in. Prayerfully, Bailey will continue to do well off the nitric. And, good news, she's lost 4 pounds in 2 days. They don't weigh down here every day like they do on the heart center, so we weren't sure where her weight was. But they weighed her this afternoon and found good news! Yeah!! She's so excited about that. We're hoping the thyroid medication they started her on about 5 days ago is helping also. Maybe we're at a turn for the better. We just keep praying and seeing what the days bring us. Bailey's hoping to be home by Thanksgiving. That would certainly be nice, but we'll do what we need to do.

Hope all is well with everyone out there. We're enjoying the country music awards (CMAs) tonight. Hoping to catch a glimpse of our good friend Mimi!

Good night.

Angie and Bailey: That is such great news about the 4 lb loss!!! I just wish Bailey could feel better, the nausea is so distressing, for both of you. Hope you have a better day and head back to the heart center.
Love, Diane

What kind of fresh food are you guys craving? More raddishes? Black olives? How did you like those breakfast bars? Please let me know and we'll hook you up! : )

I gathered some more magazines for you, Ang. These are a lot more festive! You'll enjoy them. One has pumpkin pie on the'll have to look the other way! ha ha

Miss you guys. Think about you a million moments every day. I'm just so grateful I can trust God with your care...I'm pretty sure I would have at least lost my job if not my sanity without it. You're always on my mind and in our conversations. We love you. We're praying you'll be home for Thanksgiving too. I'm not having it without you!!
Yeah, that's right! I am that stubborn!

Wish you lots of Wheezlehoggin and Skookstermoller! You'll have to refer to your blog to remember what that means! : )

Love you. Deb xoxo
