Holding Steady

Today was a pretty good day. She is still intubated, they want to give her more time to rest and all the work she had done to settled and make sure it is healing before they extubate. Basically, they are just being extra careful with her. Her lungs look good on x-ray, her blood gases are good. Her blood pressure has been a little crazy and it has been a balancing act all day! She was a little wild earlier today but they seem to have her sedation under better control this evening :-)

Tomorrow morning sometime they will try and extubate her and please pray that all goes well and there is no complications. She is doing well for having had such a big surgery but she has watchful eyes on her due to her complexity and passed issues.

Until tomorrow, I will leave with this pic....
