ICU Update 13 Dec

Sorry this is late. Although there seems to be little going on here it seems it is hard to find a minute to sit down and write. Doctors seem to stop by at perfect intervals to keep you busy.

Anyway Andrea is doing great today. She is wide awake and I decided to post some pictures of her. As you can see Andrea has not changed, still a light. In fact when I called this morning someone answered the phone and I asked to speak to Andrea's nurse. She said hold on one second. Then she came back on and said, "I have to tell you see is a sweet woman, she is just so sweet!" Then she put me back on hold. I knew Andrea was awake and getting better.

I hope the pictures help you feel closer to Andrea.

Andrea loves when we all stand around the bed and just talk. She likes to see the conversation around her.
