Monday October Something..20th maybe??

Oh the time warp of the hospital.....I mean -I see that it gets dark outside which means the progression of another day- but which day is it???? I initially typed in Saturday...and then recalled the 3 luxurious nights at Tripler Resort and Spa and can guesstimate it's Monday.

Lily is doing really really well. She got out of bed this morning which was monumental. It took bribes , but the important thing is that it happened. She's a little wobbly and very sore. They discontinued the epidural this morning, so this evening could be rough until we get the proper pain meds figured out. Tylenol and motrin are keeping the edge off now, but night time is always tougher. She has been an angel. She chants "I want to go home" and "I don't want owies" for every person that walks into the room. She has gotten used to lifting the sheet for complete strangers so I figure she'll probably get lots of kicks out of being a flasher later. She also repeatedly points out that her ankle bracelet says "lily mallory no owies" because when they admitted her that was the only way we could get her to put it on.

The actual epidural line/tube/whatchamajiggy should come out today and then the catheter. We have her bone scan tomorrow morning to make sure there is nothing there but bones. They will have to sedate her for it, but we should be able to come home after that provided she goes #2. Ahhh the ins and outs of the hospital life. We have not heard the pathology of the tumor yet, but will have a preliminary tomorrow before we get to come home.

She really loves her new game- 5 Monkeys on the Bed and has an army of stuffed friends that are keeping her company. She still refuses to wander down to the playroom, but hopefully dad can get her there. I stopped by home for a few minutes with the kids and I now must go shower as the miniature bath and shower we have in the room, doesn't quite cut it and although I feel funky- my stench doesn't seem to quite ward off anyone- so it serves no purpose. Phil will hopefully be guest blogging tonight...with pictures!
