She spent the afternoon resting in her room on One South at the Queen. Her nurses Lisa and Christina were wonderful to her. There are now many new owners of Christmas pins at the hospital! Though no one likes having to go into the hospital ..... it is fun for us to see the staff wearing Mom's pins proudly.
The Bard Power Port doesn't seem to be bothering her too much, but the PEG tube will take some getting used to. Being located right in the center of her abdomen makes moving around quite uncomfortable. They told us it might be a week before this passes. The good news is that we now can be assured that Mom will be getting her needed daily nutrition. She will continue to eat as much as she can orally, but will be supplemented by way of the PEG.
Even with this pain, she knew how important it was for her to stay tough and keep moving!
