I am shocked. At just four days post-op, we are being sent to the cardiac floor. This is great news and means Ramona might be just days away from coming home with us.

The only hitch right now is her withdrawal. The monkey is back. She had lots of diarrhea and some other withdrawal symptoms overnight. As long as that subsides and her fever does not return, we should be home relatively soon. They are adjusting her methadone and ativan, so fingers crossed.

Ramona was playing peek-a-boo this morning during rounds. She’s sleeping pretty comfortably now and her sats remain in the 80’s. Please pray that she will get back to her normal, non-foaming-at-the-mouth self soon and we will be able to take her home and resume our “normal” routine.
