Nikki and I after the show
The cast was in the lobby afterwards for photos. Sorry for the blurry camera phone shots. They were moving pretty fast!
There is a person dancing around in there!
It felt so great to go out to dinner and do something fun. I am glad I got to take my mind off of everything for awhile and just enjoy a night out!
MOM UPDATE: We finally had a good day! First off, the vent came out at 12:30 this afternoon!!! Her O2 levels are good and she is not struggling to breathe. This is such a big deal! I am praying she will never need to be intubated again. Also, some results from a recent lung culture came back showing that she has an infection that is resistant to the current antibiotics she is taking. So her infectious disease doctor switched her antibiotics and we are hoping this also helps her breathe better. And her surgeon examined her incision and stated that although it is still early, it looks better than he expected just a little over a week out from surgery. All positive things and I am so grateful to hear them! Now we just need Mom to continue to breathe well, her incision to COMPLETELY heal, and for her so regain some strength. I think we see a little light at the end of the tunnel today.
