Today Adele was moved out of the ICU and onto a cardiac floor at the Beth Israel. She no longer needs the intensive monitoring and treatment options the ICU provides. She is stable and the blood tests of the heparin (anticoagulant) have been where the doctors wanted them. She is also needing less oxygen than she did her last evening at N.E. Sinai. So all the news has been positive so far. It is not yet clear how long she may stay at the B.I. but she will likely return to N.E. Sinai at some point to finish her rehab. There is a link to an article on pulmonary embolisms that you can click on to the right of this post. We continue to learn a lot of important medical information through this journey and we hope that sharing it will help others.
