Good morning wanted to let you know how Lauren did last night. She did so much better! I am so happy to be able to actually say that. We had just one episode at the normal 4 am wake up call:) but it only lasted about 30 minutes. I think we may finally have the pain meds right. This morning Lauren is the best she has been. She has a little appetite. Asked for a herseys kiss (thanks aunt Karen, Jason and jillian). She is more alert an less dopey. Dr. Hahn came to visit and took out the drain they put in her incision area (thatt was not to much fun but as is typical Lauren gutted through it). Only one more wire/tube left just the IV hookup! Dr. Hahn also said they are coming back this afternoon to remove her cast and put on her clamshell which will be similar to a removable cast. So far a great start to the day. As always THANK YOU all so much for the prayers, love, words of encouragement, gifts and friendships.
