Mom was moved out of ICU late this afternoon!!!! She is still in a lot of pain and not ready for visitors though. She is in good spirits, but very tried and needing a lot of rest. Today they removed about half the tubes, cords and other things connected to her so she is feeling a bit more free. She is hoping to start a liquid diet tomorrow. She told me today she will never again take a sip of water for granted!! She is still a good amount still attached for now but the nurses and doctors are very please with her. She is doing as they asked in regards to getting out of bed and sitting for periods of time and tomorrow they want her to start walking around a bit. She is still projected for at least a week in the hospital but everyday has been better.
