Update #6, She walks!!

I was unable to stay at the hospital last night. She was not alone though. Thank you Janet for staying with her. I talked to Susan this morning, and everything seems to be going well. Today was the day they were going to have her get up and try to walk. She got to walk earlier than expected though this morning around 4am, not because it was the right time, but because they were trying to keep her awake and breathing :( Susan took a little too much pain killer last night. It caused her to relax a little too much which slowed her breathing in her sleep to about 10 breaths a minute. Not so good, so they needed to keep her awake. Susan asked if she could try to walk, she did a few laps around the floor. She was walking slowly then she pushed her mom and nurse away and started running to the elevator trying to escape. Part of that story may not have really happened, I had a hard time understanding her on the phone early this morning. One of us must have been on something.
