Food For The Lioness!

Diet restrictions were lifted this morning! Her diet is a modified diet, as per instructions of the surgeon. She is to eat a low residue diet to slow down digestion and minimize work in the large intestine. She has no appetite yet since the bag of nutrients is still going into her vein. But that bag order ends tonight and then she will want to eat. We will try to get her to eat sooner, too because I am pushing for release sometime tomorrow.  But so much has happen before then with prescriptions and ordering her hard-to-find medicines. So, it could be Sunday before we can go home. I hope it being a Friday does not make it more difficult…..

Also great news, her ANC count is over 100 today. Her WBCs went up to 3.6 and her neutrophils are at 3%. We have a lot to be thankful for this morning. 🙂

    Your grandmother, Betty, told me of Naomi’s love for lions and tigers. If you can open this site on Facebook, be a friend, you can let her share some beautiful pictures,fun videos and stories of our adopted big cats here in NC. I volunteer at this facility and have helped care for a tiger, Rajaji, since he was about 18 months old. He helped me make it through cancer about 15 yrs ago so the healing powers of big cats is utterly amazing as well as our faith! Please check us out: Carolina Tiger Rescue, find us on facebook. etc. Maybe it will bring a smile to her face to watch tigers actually painting! our prayers are with you and your family
