I am happy to report that Tiffany is doing great. They moved her from the intensive care unit to a regular room yesterday and they have already had her up and walking down the hall. When we went to see her she was out of bed and sitting in a chair. Seeing how much progress she has made in such a short time really puts our hearts and minds at ease.
She is still a bit groggy from all of the meds, and she can’t remember the original heart attack itself or the second one she had while in the hospital. I told her that’s okay, some things don’t need to be remembered. And, of course, she already wants go home, but that’s not going to be for a while yet. She still has a lot of healing left to do.
In yesterday’s blog I mentioned that Terry’s sister Dani is letting us stay in her fifth wheel here at Hon- Dah RV Park, a little over 12 miles from the hospital. Dani is a nurse practitioner and a flight nurse with Air Evac Services, Inc., which operates a fleet of fixed wing aircraft and helicopters from 18 bases throughout Arizona and New Mexico. It’s a high tech company, and one of the goodies they use to be able to get to patients in need anywhere, day or night, are night vision goggles that take any available light, be it the moon, stars, or whatever, and multiplies it thousands of times, turning darkness into daylight.
Dani can be anywhere in the region, but this weekend she happened to be stationed in Show Low. So when we left the hospital we drove a couple of blocks to the home/office where the flight crew stays when waiting for a call and had a nice visit with her. We are hoping to get together for breakfast this morning before she leaves to go back to Phoenix.
Back at the RV park, we stopped at Terry’s parent’s fifth wheel, where her mom treated us to some delicious strawberry shortcake. Then it was back to Dani’s trailer to catch up on emails before heading to bed to catch up on some much needed rest. We are both still pretty worn out.
