Yesterday, Michaela’s close friend Sandira came to visit in the morning. Sandira grew up in Australia and taught Michaela the aussie slang for passing gas: “fluffing”. Michaela instantly became enamored of this new term and is teaching it to everyone who comes to see her (including all the nurses and CNA’s).
Fluffing is the first major step in getting her home. Since her guts were involved with the surgery, fluffing is a sign that they are returning to normal. And the good news is that there was a fluff today! This means she was finally able to drink and barring any major problems, she will be coming home on Friday!!!
The messages of love and support continue to pour in and we are all in great spirits and tremendously grateful.
Hooray for fluffing!
