When we got here this morning we found that Gwen has advanced to wearing clothes and being bundled up in blankets. They've turned her bed heater off. She's on 3L of O₂, down from 4L yesterday. She's moving to intermittent feeds, on for 2 hours, off for 1. All these are steps towards getting her used to what life at home would be like.
During the night they moved her IV for her lipids from her foot to her arm.
The nurse this morning could not get Gwen to settle, and chalked it up to how crazy it is here. And it is crazy. Not a minute goes by that some machine somewhere is beeping. The worst are the ventilators on Gwen's neighbors. When we first got here there were a lot of visitors. The nurse gave her a sedative, which we would prefer her not to be on, but she needs to sleep. They are talking about her having a more steady dose.
Laura's holding her right now. I got to hold her for an hour before we left last night.
