They placed an arterial line in Hope's wrist today to better keep track of her blood pressure as well as allowing them to draw labs better...that way they don't have to poke her every time they need to draw blood. This means that she has and IV in her wrist and it makes it hard for her to move her hand, but she doesn't seem to mind all that much. She really is a trooper with all the stuff she is hooked up to.
We got a call today from a nurse case manager at Medical Mutual. She will be helping to manage Hope's care at the Cleveland Clinic. We also met with the social worker from the Cleveland Clinic and she will also help us with the care Hope is receiving and they will both be coordinating the care Hope receives when she leaves the hospital.
