Christmas dress shopping with GrammaDecember 10, 2008 by Bill Strong
Gwendolyn has been doing well. She's been having a few mucus plugs over the last few days that are a bit concerning, but overall she's in great spirits so we're just watching her closely.
The Robinul is definitely helping her secretions. We're giving her 2mL doses twice daily via her g-tube and it has made a HUGE difference -- she's even able to come off bi-pap and be held upright for much longer periods of time. This is a very, very positive and unexpected benefit of Robinul's impact (we assume).
Yesterday, Gramma took Gwendolyn shopping for a Christmas dress. We had fun picking out the perfect outfit together and Gwendolyn really enjoyed the outing and being part of the decision. She also loved when Gramma helped her throw two pennies into the fountain at the mall andGramma's very peculiar donkey sound ("heeeeehawwwww") is a gigantic hit --Gwendolyn was cracking up all the way home.
