Monday and Tuesday were really bad days for Taylor. The doctors were having a difficult time controlling her pain. They finally figured out that one problem was that the spinal catheter and/or automated medication device was not working at all. They had to re-do the spinal catheter and were having a hard time getting it right. As a result, they had to “stick” her 6 more times before they could it reestablished.
She was also hallucinating badly and as a result of being over medicated was unable to sleep. She was finally able to fall asleep around midnight Tuesday and was able to sleep all night. Taylor woke this morning with no more hallucinations!!! She is off the narcotics and is receiving a little anesthesia to keep her legs numb via the spinal catheter.
Also, Channel 10 News came to the hospital this afternoon to cover Taylor and her story. They will be airing the report about Taylor tonight on the 11:00pm news. If you have a chance please tune in and check it out. The segment will be available on http://www.10news.com tomorrow sometime. Also, feel free to pass information about the news story along to anyone you may know so that we can continue to spread the word.
Taylor and her family continue to be amazed by the outpouring of compassion and support by friends, both new and old, as well as by those that we’ve never even met. Your generosity has been extraordinary and it’s encouraging that in such a fast paced world, that people would stop what they’re doing to consider helping a young woman in her hour of need.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, for your support and compassion, and for the knowledge that Taylor and family aren’t going through this alone. You’ll never know how much it means to us all.
