Good Afternoon everyone,
Ingrid has been in a lot of pain so they took her for an X-ray yesterday and found she has a broken elbow and knee (on right side). Orthopaedic surgeon was seeing her last night to assess if surgery is needed.
We found out a bit more about her brain injury; it’s called a Diffuse Axonal Injury(DAI) grade 3. It was a grade 4 upon arrival but it has improved to a grade 3 in the past 3 weeks. So it is severe but the doctors still remain hopeful as she is showing signs of improvements each day.
The back op she is having is called Kyphoplasty Surgery, and the plan is to do it on Friday if all goes well.
She is off the ventilator again and they were going to try keep her off the whole of last night.
She isn’t interacting with the doctors at the moment which could be caused by a range of things like the pain medication they are currently giving her etc, so they want to start neuro stimulation with her as soon as possible too.
