Procedure Successful

CaringBridge journal entry by Stephanie Fay — 8/16/2016

Nancy is back up in her room after a by all accounts successful ICD procedure. She had conscious sedation for this and seems to be enjoying a sweet afternoon nap while she recovers. The docs told her to just take it easy the rest of the day.


Yesterday we wheelchaired down to the 4th floor ICU and found Nancy’s nurse, Nicky, from her first two overnights in the ICU. Nancy doesn’t remember those nights, of course, but Nicky certainly remembered Nancy!! I’ll let the photo tell the rest of the story….. I stood there and cried like big baby pretty much –tears of gratitude and thankfulness for such extraordinarily kind and skilled caregivers.
