I’ve decided that’s what the “we’re not out of the woods yet” phrase means.
And that’s the phrase Mom has applied to Gma’s current condition. Tests continue to report a low blood count, and that is troubling to the doctors, since that should have improved by now.
They will be doing a bone-marrow test/check (whatever the appropriate name is) sometime today, and the results should be available tomorrow.
When I asked, Mom said the doctor or whoever decided against moving her to the “surgical observation floor” (I think it is called) as planned, since there’s no push for ICU rooms. This keeps Gma under more consistent (or at least more frequent) observation.
