Ellie had a fantastic sleep last night and she had just woken up when I arrived.
When I came in she was thoroughly enjoying a chat with herself in the mirror. (I still wonder if she thinks Hannah has come to visit). While her stats are not currently great (low haemoglobin count in her blood cells and heavy breathing) she was so interactive and happy today.
It was beautiful spending this time with her and she was so content and interested in having someone to talk to. While this was great, it also made it clear how much happier she would be at home with her sister and family.
Again nothing eventuated with the medical plan ahead and we continue to watch and discern the best course forward. There are so many people involved in making the big decisions (surgeons, nurses, consultants, fellows as well as Deb and Myself) that it is very slow going. The upside of this is that it gives Ellie every chance to improve on her own and get stronger for whatever challenges lie ahead.
