Kidney Surgery — sixth report

At approximately 10AM, Debbi was moved to her room on the 5th floor. She continues to be very drowsy but at times she wakes and is mentally alert. Soon the pain level increases, she hits the magic button, a dose of Fentanyl Citrate / Bupivacaine HCl hits the epidural and with the subsiding of pain, she falls back asleep.

By the end of the day we are hoping she will be able to have a liquid lunch, walk around a bit, and try some solids for dinner. Maybe Debbi will even dictate a message for the blog. We shall see.
