Xiaoyun and Virgil had a long night. She's now up to 18 pounds of traction and it was causing muscle spasms. The most sleep they got at any given time was about 30 minutes They started her on muscle relaxers this morning and that has made a world of difference. She has been hours now without pain medicine and it's been about 7 hours since she got the muscle relaxer. She has walked the floor several times and had quite a few visitors today. We took a tour of the ICU, where she will be after the surgery on Wednesday. She likes her room here in this area, and is not happy she'll have to relocate for a while. I don't think she'll even be aware of which she room she has once the surgery is over :-( . She goes for xrays tomorrow to see how the traction is working. I've took a picture (below) of her bed with traction on so you can have some idea of her setup. Also, she posed in front of her wall covered with messages sent to the hospital for her. I'll update more after xrays tomorrow!!!
