So the second opinion is much the same as the first. I have seen her legs now, and do see where they are coming from. However, they were saying the same thing about her hand 3 days ago, and now feel that it has a better prognosis. So the family has decided to wait a bit, especially since there is not infection from it right now. We will see what happens over the weekend. A 3rd opinion is coming over, and I expect it to be much the same. I just want to give it a little bit more time before we do it in case some miracle happens.
Last night Carol sedation was almost entirely lifted. Turned out to be too quick of a drop. She was mouthing words quietly at first, but around 9:30 she was getting very pissed that she couldn't just get up and walk out. At first she was asking where I, Chloe, and Safiya were ( I wasn't there yet). Later she started saying that "I want to go, I want to go". By around 9:30 -10ish she was swearing at me to get her the heck out of there. She moved all 4 extremities. At one point she lifted her right leg 3 feet in the air and slammed it down on the bed in frustration. She was trying to slide herself off the bed. So the sedation was bumped back up a little. A slower come down from it has been adopted now, instead of just a quick stop on it.
As far as what is happening next. I am going to start pushing to have her wounds debrided and skin graft done as neccessary. They wanted to take the feet, debride, and do the first skin grafts all on the same day. But since we are postponing the feet for a bit, why not get the debridements going? The areas involved are a patch on her abdomen, pretty much entire left and right calf areas, and maybe some on the arms.
