May 24th update was…uh, well Nicole is going through withdrawl from her medicine and we could tell she would much rather be doing something else…like laying in a peaceful coma! It was like a double edged sword. It was nice to see her whole body move around all over, but she did this constantly and it was pretty hard not to wish myself that she was back into the full coma. Of course, the staff doesn’t tell you like it is, but even the uneducated eye could see it was drug withdrawl.  So I asked and got a nod. They did give her 2 seperate very small doses of the sedation in the afternoon, which was a welcome sight. They were very slight doses. So it took the edge off just slightly for her, it didn’t knock her into la la land.  I’ve accepted all of it, but this was one I would’ve liked her to be able to skip. This evening will determine if we’ll go down again on the pain med, or wait till early am.  We got invited to an angel’s house: a retired critical care RN, that was herself was in a coma, and finished out her career doing massage and physical therapy on the same kind of people! She had Glenn and I both take a turn on the bed and she taught us both what to do to Nic’s body for therapy.  OMG-my shoulder blades and head are so sore! Glenn’s neck is even stiffer! SHE knows what the heck she’s doing, and those things on us got sore EXACTLY when she said they would! She gave us some special lotion she makes to use on our little girl, we will !!   Please pray for Nic’s today and tomorrow that things are a bit easier on her system from now on, a tough battle for such a yound lady. They still say she’s waking up, just don’t know what the package will be like after it’s open. Besides beautiful. Thank you.
