The third opinion went much different than expected. He thinks/thought we should wait it out if not a problem. He was very concerned with her skin lesions and think we should be getting on that right away first. If you haven't read the blog......this is the answer I have been looking for. He suggested we move Carol to Harborview (the wound/burn hospital in Seattle). Becuase of that harborview has been consulted again today. The idea of moving her there has come a couple times every week since she has been there. But she hasn't been stable enough to move. She is now. Of course I am concerned a little bit if I am just trying to hear what I want to hear....but I don't care, it just feels right to me. Either way we are waiting a bit on the feet.
Carol was very sleepy all day today. She did not answer me at all today, until I asked about 730 tonight if she wanted to see Safiya. She shook her head yes. She we got to bring her in for a second time. Carol loved it. I held her up to Carols face and Carol started kissing her cheek. I laid Safiya next to her for a little bit. Carol fell asleep after that.
We will call it a day after that. Good day....hopefully we can get Carol to harborview next week. For those not from here, Harborview is associated with uw, and the va hospital. They are state run. It would in General not be my first place to send Carol, but it is the place to go here for burn and wound healing. Hope that helps
