It was a busy day today. In the morning, Taylor had speech, physical, and occupational therapies. Shortly before noon, we put on her “life vest” and Taylor took a 30 minute ride to University of Colorado Hospital where she was admitted for her defibrillator procedure. After getting an I.V. placed in her arm (which took 3 different people before they could get it) and speaking with the cardiologist, surgeon, and anesthesiologist, Taylor was taken into surgery around 4pm. The procedure itself lasted about 2 hours, but Taylor was not taken back to her room until around 9pm because of the pre-op and post-op procedures. The doctor who performed the procedure said that everything went as planned and that there were no complications. When Taylor came back, she seemed a little groggy and rightfully complained of some pain at the site, but otherwise, seemed fine. She said she was hungry (she was not allowed to eat past 6am this morning) but did not eat more than a few bites of noodles before feeling nauseated. After that, I put on some soft music for her and she went right to sleep. We will be staying at University Hospital over the weekend and returning to Craig Hospital on Monday, when she will resume her rehabilitative therapy.
