Sorry for not posting last night, all! We saw Miss Lauren yesterday and she looked better. All #'s are good, especially when people aren't harassing her. She has been much more awake / aware the last few days. Partly because her body is getting used to the Diprivan (Jackson Juice) and it's not keeping her as sedated as before.
The nurses are keeping her comfortable, though. When she wakes up, she wants the tube out NOW and gets frustrated, which I can completely understand. Miss Lauren is fighting to get off that vent!
Yesterday she figured out how to move her hands enough to flip people off when she's annoyed. Once she figured out how to do it, we started seeing it a lot more often. Mostly aimed at the nurses. =)
