Goodmorning, I got to see Christie yesterday. She looks so good from when I saw her that first night. The swelling in her face has gone down, she can open her eyes and the tube is again out of her throat. When I arrived they had just down a bandage change which is VERY painful. Those who were in the room with her said it was the most painful thing they have every seen someone go through. Aaron said the grafting on her hands look really well done. What part of her face I could see looked really good and looked like it was healing nicely. She is so strong!!! She can't move her neck because of the grafting so her mobility in bed is limited.
She is in amazing spirits and says she is trying to follow everything the doctors and nurses tell her to do so that she heals quickly and well. She is still in a lot of pain and frequently has to ask them to up her meds but she was laughing and making jokes when I was in there.
I will let you know when she is up for visitors but she rests a lot right now and because of her limitied mobility doesn't want too many visitors. She wants to be able to be a better hostess she says:)
