Cardiovascular ICU Graduate

CaringBridge journal entry by Stephanie Fay – 8/10/2016

Nancy moved up to the 6th floor later this afternoon. Hurray! MRIs have been moved to tomorrow. She’s one very entertaining patient. And, as the evening nurse said to the overnight nurse, Nancy has a very loving and involved family. Indeed.


Must sleep so will rely on a few photos this entry. Nancy with her nurse from 3 am last night to 3 pm this afternoon, Katie. Check out those gorgeous pigtails!!

Nancy, it appears that someone(lots) are having fun with you in this semi helpless state. Do I need to fly out to help protect you from rubber band, bead wielding, crazy people? So good to see that smile. Love and hugs💓

If visits are helpful, we can be there in a little more than an instant. I’m guessing that for the time being, letting all visiting energy be spent with family is right. So let us know when you are ready to open the doors and in the meantime know of our continuous hopes for a straightforward and rapid recovery! Katia and Melanie

If I were a nurse I’d want to take care of Nancy. She’d be a blast!!! Glad to hear she’s moved. Praying for continued healing. Keep up the good work Nancy.
