Reports from Day 2

This is her room in the ICU. It is the loudest room ever, full of beeps and alarms and motors running. It’s no wonder she can’t sleep!

This is what she looked like yesterday, before most of her tubes came out. Almost none of that stuff is there anymore. The  long bandage is her scar, which we haven’t gotten to see yet.

I got to hold her a lot last night and she was SO happy. And she’s on juice now and ate some yogurt. She’s watching cartoons and wants to be sitting up. I think today is going to be a very good day. I may even speculate that we might get moved to a less intensive care floor for today and may possibly go home tomorrow. But that’s just a guess if things continue to go well.

Her kidney function is doing well now and the cardiologist came in last night and told us he thinks she does NOT have a collapsed lung, he thinks it was a bad x-ray. They took another one this morning and we’ll know more in a few hours. I got to see her X-ray and saw how gigantic her heart is. I was astonished. She needed this surgery much more badly than I even thought. We got to listen to her heart and there’s no more whooshing sound. Just a normal heartbeat now! What ever will I blog about?

    Grandma and Grandpa were there with mom, dad and Veronica. It was really tough emotionally to see her with all those tubes and wires hooked up to her. We are thanking the good Lord that he is taking good care of our little grandaughter by giving her such an excellent surgeon, and team of doctors and nurses and that she is getting the best of care.
    We are very proud of mom and dad for making the right decision to have this done now and we pray for them hourly while they are going through this. (very exhausting ordeal)Here is hoping for great news all the way!
    Love you family,
    Nana
