Hello everyone!! Our niece was able to sit up today with some help. The nausea medicine is finally working, praise God! I can't imagine the pain of throwing up when your pelvis has been broken. She was able to eat some today, but they want her calorie intake up to 1800. She hasn't eaten since the accident last Wednesday, so I'm sure her stomach has shrunken. I'm sure her intake will improve drastically the next few days. She also received a sponge bath and a hair wash today; that alone made her feel so much better.
She still has a long road of recovery ahead of her. We have put off our trip until we know some more details. She will be sent to a rehad center, hopefully closer to home. Right now, she's two hours from home. My hubby's hometown is small and she was airlifted to Des Moines after the accident to check for internal injuries. Praise God that she didn't have any!!
