As expected for the day after surgery, things were a little more rough for Kerri today but overall everything is still going very well. The oral surgeon visited this morning and was very happy with how little swelling there is. He feels Kerri is doing great! She had more pain today but this is to be expected after having 4 wisdom teeth out yesterday. When RSD is in the picture, pain is amplified, so the medical team is trying very hard to keep her comfortable. She had a 2 hour high dose booster infusion this afternoon with Dr. Luis, Dr. Cantu's partner, at her bedside the whole time. Seeing Dr. Luis again was wonderful and he couldn't get over how well Kerri looked since last year. Kerri woke up about 2 hours after the infusion was done. The treatment was unsettling for her but she is on board for the 3 or 4 more days of infusion to come. She is quite a trooper! She was able to start eating some soft foods today and enjoyed some mashed potatoes. Each day she's unable to eat or drink for 6 hours before the infusion, so by the time she woke up she was very hungry and thirsty.
Mark stayed right by Kerri for the infusion so I was treated to lunch with Erin at the hospital coffee shop and a little time soaking up the beautiful Monterrey sunshine in front of the hospital.
We love and miss you all very much. Kerri really loves having us read the comments you are sending to all of us. It is definitely one of the high points of our days here! Thanks.
Kathy, Mark, Kerri and Erin
