Today Sheena's Pead decided she had Pulmonary Edema. After some diuretics she had improved a lot, and her breathing is immensely better. She still needs the oxygen for now, so we're still stuck in hospital, but at least we're in a private room so we can sleep easy enough. We'll be in here until Wed or Thursday, so I am pacing myself. The hospital environment is brain-numbing. Its hard to read or watch TV or do anything other than care for Sheena and eat and sleep. I am treating it as a good way to completely wind down with no other demands other than Sheena's health. There is no point getting frustrated and impatient with it. Sheena's Nan is going to sit with her tomorrow while I have to work, so I will get out amongst the real world for a while.
