Not dreaming....

Rita is doing incredible!  Nitric oxide has been removed, catheter out, kidneys woke up and numbers are normal, blood pressure stabilized, pain is manageable.  Two chest tubes removed today with the hopes of the other two being removed Tuesday.  Temporary pacing wires will be removed Monday. She is no longer on any cardiac medicines!!  And she is enjoying solid food.  She has incredible color and a beautiful smile!  She keeps asking if she's simply dreaming!

She has been moved OUT of ICU and onto the floor.  Address with new room #.
