Callie had a good day today, she slept well last night. I'm not sure how she gets any sleep in the ICU, it can be so loud at times! This morning I fixed her hair, put a pretty new bow...she wasn't thrilled with me brushing her hair but was happy to have me put the bow in:)She did some coloring today and watched lots of movies.
They are playing around with her blood pressure medicine, she will be going home on bp meds until she returns for her next cath. They started up her feeds again today and she was able to eat a little cereal and ice chips. She will possibly be going in for a barium swallow to rule out if she aspirates when she swallows. Everyone believes she will be fine because she has a good strong cough and her vocal cord should return back to normal working in order in a matter of time. ENT believes it is only temporary:) YAY! Her one chest tube is still putting out a fair amount, I'm praying it slacks off and she can get that out very soon. She is still on high flow oxygen, they are working on weaning that down.
Will leaves to go home on Friday, so that sucks:( I'm hoping Callie does okay with him leaving, hopefully she won't mind too much.
