4th Day Post Surgery - 12:00 PM
It sounds as if they are going to close her chest today. Things look to be going well, they changed all of the tubes and syringes last night. She is really not as swollen so the dialysis is working. In fact she is looking more like a newborn than an older baby. The little newborn wrinkles are coming back:)
So on top of planning to close later today the order have been given to stop the Vecuronium which is the paralytic. Once they stop that she will be able to move by herself but probably wont due to the fact she is still gorked out on the Fentanyl. Slowly however they will decrease the Fentanyl and she will wake up - everything in due time.
On a side note today is Claire's birthday and she got a bike! I just wanted to wish her a happy birthday and let her know that even though it may seem like all the attention is on her new little sister, we remembered her on her special day.
