Hoping–Natalie

Last night when we went in to visit Natalie we found her asleep, this sleep was well needed as she has been in so much pain she has had very little of it these past few days, they have upped her pain relief and they seemed to have knocked her out. We hadn’t been there long before she awoke and the tears started falling. They have put her on Tramadol, something that both myself and my Mam already take for our pain and although they are very good they can knock you sideways so to speak.

Natalie is feeling a little sickly and dizzy from the new meds but if they can take away the pain she has got then it could be worth it. She managed to eat some dinner, a cheese omelette and said it was quite tasty so that was a bonus as normally hospital food is quite bland.

She also had a facial X-ray after we left yesterday afternoon so hopefully they will find the cause of what is happening with Natalie.

Natalie is very upset, worrying that her face will stay like it is at present but we have tried to reassure her that once the infection is under control she will start to see an improvement, sometimes things have to get worse to get better and that seems to be what is happening at the moment, the swelling looks as if it is going to the other side of her face but not as excessive.

I have everything crossed that she has had a good nights rest and when I get in to see her this afternoon I will see some improvement.

Thank you for all your thoughts and well wishes for Natalie.

It is great that she has control over the pain but not nice that she is feeling so nauseous hopefully it will settle. I hope you find her much improved when you go later to visit.
Natalie will remain in my healing thoughts till we know she is better.

I sure hope, that today will be the day, when she´ll begin a very speedy recovery and she´ll soon be laughing about the pics, you´ve taken of her now. Ofcause she´s upsett about the look now, as none of us would like to look like this, but I really hope, it´ll turn today and begin to get better for her.
Biiiiiig hugs and loving thoughts to all of you there.

I too am on Tramadol Jak and i agree it can knock you sideways, it does help me get sleep at nights too when i am having a bad flare up. Good to hear Natalie managed to eat a little and hopefully she has slept all night and that soon things will improve. You must remember to get some good rest yourself if you can.
Hugs to you all.
