|1st time sitting up mostly on her own|
|Feeling much better after a bath!|
|Erica was a great nurse/beautician! Getting a shampoo - hospital style!|
|Looks like our Leiney Grace is back|
Today started out looking great but then after a few bites of breakfast, the sick look returned. It became apparent after lunch that Leiney Grace's stomach is just not ready for food. We are back to only clear liquids and hoping and praying tomorrow will be the day her tummy decides it wants to digest food.
On a positive note, the line in her jugular vein was removed today as well as the foley catheter. We thought we were moving to a room but there is no available bed. Thus Leiney Grace will spend another night in the PCICU, and I will be back at the Ronald McDonald House.
Tomorrow we hope that at least 2 of the 3 chest tubes will come out. We should be treated like a floor patient even though she is still in the ICU ie she can go to the playroom! We are hoping that by getting her up more, she will be more inclined to take some deeper breaths as her oxygen sats have been a little lower today. Brenley is about the same. Thank you for praying for her and our Leiney Grace.
