Christie's breathing tube was removed today so now she has no tubes running down her throat. She seems to be a lot happier with this becuase now she can talk a little, although her voice is still very faint and laboured. She is still on a lot of drugs but they are giving her max dosage and it still doesn't help her to sleep so we can hope that they find something to help her so that she doesn't have to be alone and awake long into the night.
Although she is in a lot of pain and on a lot of drugs she is still in good spirits often making jokes about some of her injuries. Today the nurses were putting her feeding tube down her nose and they said something to her about being careful because her nose is quite burnt and she replied, that's fine I never did like my nose now I can have plastic surgery :) She's still got her spunk and spirit and still doesn't take no for an answer. She was demanding that she get her iphone, she got upset when they told her no. Once she had it she sat there scrolling through it, I'm sure this give her a sense of familiarity and control. She's a funny girl, she's fighting and this just proves to us all that not gonna give up!
I hope to get to go see her tomorrow or Tuesday so I'll hopefully have some more to report on.
