Here’s the sleep update. Kari slept Sunday night, none Monday night, the whole night Tuesday, and only about 2 hours Wednesday night. Right now she is dozing off but waking up every few minutes because of spasms. We had a very good day, though. Kari was confused a lot less today. We did a couple of new things in PT (a sliding board transfer and stretching on the mat) and after OT we went over to Swedish Hospital to visit her old nurses. Melissa and Kristy were both there and were very excited to see her and amazed at how good she looked—almost back to normal and not even wearing oxygen during the day now. Kristy was the very first Nurse that Kari had and was there when Kari went into Surgery back in July. Kari was not 100% clear mentally today, but she was a lot better and told Kristy that it was “good to come back to visit to see how far you’ve come.” After our visit we went around the corner to a little ice cream shop that has the best ice cream I’ve ever had. It was our first time out by ourselves to a restaurant or store and was a lot of fun. Kari even drank the espresso that they had there. It was nice to be outside too. After we got back, ate dinner and got her back into bed her confusion and anxiety started to increase again. By about 8pm she had a hard time remembering anything we did today without excessive prompting and was getting very mixed up between what she was watching on TV and what she was doing. As I’m writing this she has been waking up and trying to tell me something but not making any sense and panicking a lot. It does finally seem like we’re making some progress, though, but it looks like night time will be hard for a while yet. It is so frustrating how she can be nice and relaxed for hours and then all of the sudden going into extreme panic—shaking, screaming, begging for help, and not knowing what’s going on or making sense when she speaks. We still haven’t seen what even two nights in a row of sleep can do for her. A sleep specialist is supposedly coming tomorrow afternoon, so we’ll see what he has to say. Looking forward to being at church on Sunday and Lester Oaks on Saturday and seeing people in Cali. I hope your fasting is going well if you are participating.
