Snuggles, clean gown and movie watching...

UPDATE: So much for no news is good news!! The gerneral surgery just left and said that they see air leaking out in her belly. To be honest I can't quote you exactly what they said except for it shouldn't be there. I told them a little about her history like always have so much air and they are going to do more xrays tonight. They both remembered her from when she was here so sick in April with her bowels issues. They also said that I would be seeing the surgeon who actually did Annabel's bowel resection back in June. He was such a nice doctor who never even questioned the fact that she was Trisomy 18. This is it I am going snuggle until xrays and then return for more...

Update #2: She is now NPO, I think this is just in case and i feel sure after the xrays we will be able to have our feeding. This came from the 3rd general surgeon that just left. My opinion is she is feeling better than last night so hard to believe anything is wrong.


Look who is here!!!
This is my sissy, Colette...

Am I seeing double, oh no this is Carly...


Fresh, clean and comfy...


This will be short so I can hold her again. She is still very sore but that is to be expected after laying flat since Friday morning. Then I asked for a big girls bed so I can lay and watch movies or TV with her. Still no reports from lab or xrays, I am assuming no news is good news. She tolerated the morphine better today and slept almost the entire day. Mel brought Carly and Colette to the hospital and they brought Tara back home as she needs to return to work. Carly and Colette actually got a smile from her today when she woke and saw them by her bed. Still praying all goes well and we can be discharged tomorrow as was originally planned. I will update tomorrow and thanks so much!
