Agent Ethan here reporting. Cathy is still in the NICU,still bandaged with any number of tubes and surrounded by machines that go bleep, bloop, and PING. She is in fine spirits and being very well cared for, but there have been a few minor speed bumps which may keep her in the NICU for one more evening. She had a pretty large seizure which encompassed her entire arm and neck on the left side of her body. Nothing critical, it just means that now she is super doped up on Dilantin, which is a step above her previous meds. Also, in Cathy's own words, she is now officially an airhead, literally. Overnight I guess she developed a little air pocket in her brain, which isn't uncommon. To combat this they have her huffing pure oxygen, and this will hopefully burst that bubble. Her left hand is also still quite weak, but this is nothing that can't be remedied with time and physical therapy. That is all for now, I will be in and out of her room for the duration of the afternoon, but until she gets moved to a regular room, all visits should be put on hold for the time being. We love you all, and I will let you know more as time passes. Peace.
