Adele is doing great. The family spent the afternoon with her. She was talking and joking between naps. She was moved to a chair in her ICU room for a few hours. She ate a bit of her dinner and has a newfound love for lemon sorbet. Her nurses are wonderful with her. They are able to keep her comfortable despite the tubes, wires and wounds. She has only half as many things attached to her as she did yesterday, which is really nice. Yet she cannot run away yet as she is still tethered to some large machines. She told us the story of her uncle Morris who took his tubes out when he was hospitalized years ago and climbed out the window to get back to work. I don't think Adele would have ever been that zealous to get to work, do you? Maybe to a sale at a Christmas Tree Shop, though.
