So real quick....
Carol got moved out of the ICU to the 8th floor at Harborview...into a big quiet room..very nice indeed. Her trach is still in, but the balloon in her neck is out, and the trach is capped. It will probably come out tomorrow or the day after. Regardless she can talk very well now. She is doing very good, and excited to get things going. Nothing really going on this week though. Another week of just getting better with increased pt/ot. There will be an inpatient rehab consultation on thursday, and a game plan from there with a family powwow with the doctors on Friday.
