Day 3 Post Op...

Is her smile contagious????

Today has been a really good day for Annabel! I am so thankful that she is more awake and smiles whenever we ask. She interacts with the nurses when they come in to take care of her. So as far as the praise go, she has less BM's, they removed her ng tube that was allowing anything in her tummy to come out, they began 1/2 of her amounts of breastmilk three times daily. She is smiling, clapping with her hand that is without an IV, watching movies, and reaching for bubbles.

Praying that she will continue to heal in good time, that she will be able to tolerate her feedings, the temp that she had today will be of no concequence, that when the foley cath is removed she will be able to urinate fully on her own.

I think her progress is everything that has been expected thus far. Besides her healing from the bowel surgery, hopefully we will master this bi-pap issue and be on our way home. Thank you for your continued faithfulness and the love you send our way
